When the weather outside is frightful, nothing warms us up like some homemade hot cocoa. And because we always have a large amount of milk in the fridge, we get to make it very authentically.
1/3 cup cocoa
3/4 cup sugar (I use Rapadura, but I'm still working on reducing the amount)
1/3 cup boiling water
Bring to a boil and then gently simmer for 2 minutes, being careful to not scorch it.
Add 4 cups milk and heat to very hot, but do not boil.
Remove from heat and add 3/4 tsp vanilla.
Even Abby gets a little, though I ladle her's out before it gets very warm!
