HOMEMADE HOT COCOA

 If you have not made hot cocoa yet, I suggest you do so and soon!  Everyone loved it.  It was so creamy.  I used milk, not powdered.

 Here are my little hot cocoa makers.  Jackson's new favorite thing is to pull up the stool and help Mommy in the kitchen.  He does great and I don't mind his help at all.  He enjoys dumping the ingredients into the bowl.  Stirring is a good thing for him.  Abigail, she was just curious what we were doing.
These are the basic ingredients for the Special Hot Cocoa.  (very simple)
Let me know if you make it and how you enjoyed it.


I found this at the web page above.  You can go to it or use the recipe below, which is the same.

Special Hot Cocoa

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2/3 cups sugar
pinch of salt
1/3 cup boiling water
6 cups milk
