3 minute Cocoa

I Love, I mean, absolutely LOVE hot chocolate.

But don't bring me a packet of some store bought stuff..

Just hand me the canister of sugar and the Hershey's cocoa powder.. oh yea.. and the milk.. NEVER water.. never, never EVER.

The weather's getting colder here in NY.. I'm not happy about it since we barely had a summer this year, but the one good thing is sitting and enjoying a cup of hot cocoa at night before bed.

This is the recipe I use:

Hot cocoa for one

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cocoa
1 dash salt
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
1 Add sugar, cocoa and salt into a large cup.

2 Heat milk in microwave on high for 1 minute or until hot.

3 Pour milk into cocoa mixture; stir.

4 Stir in vanilla.

I like to add a little dash of cinnamon into it for a little kick too.. just be careful not to leave your cup alone for long.. I sat mine down.. and half of it was mysteriously gone
