Since my children were determined to enjoy the wet, slushy snow today, I decided to make some cocoa. Here's a quick recipe:
3T cocoa (unsweetened)
1/4 c sugar
4 c milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Heat the milk in a saucepan on high until it almost boils. Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Take milk off stove eye when milk is hot. Add a little of the hot milk to the dry ingredients and stir well. Then dump that back in the pot and add the vanilla. You can add marshmallows. Or you could add other ingredients to make it fun (like peppermints, caramel sauce, or anything else you like... (I made some for myself with 1 packet of truvia instead of sugar).
