Grandma’s Best Hot Chocolate

Modern conveniences make busy lives easier. But when it comes to hot chocolate, modern conveniences have let us down. Today’s “just add hot water and stir” hot chocolate mixes do not taste nearly as good as the steaming cups of rich deliciousness that Grandma served to us after an afternoon of sledding or making angels in the snow. Nor do they make life much easier. Grandma’s recipe was so simple and the final results so much tastier, that it doesn’t make sense not to make hot chocolate Grandma’s way. Try this recipe that Grandma found printed right on the cocoa can.  I’ll bet you’ll never buy a powdered mix again!

Hershey’s Cocoa is a staple in my baking cupboard.

 Hershey’s Hot Cocoa

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup Hershey’s Cocoa
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla

Mix sugar, cocoa and salt in a saucepan. Stir in water. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in milk and heat. DO NOT BOIL Remove from heat. Add vanilla.

You can add a dollup of whipped cream or some mini marshmallows too!
