Warm your tummy!

Mama made this while we were growing up. I still remember the sound of the spoon on the bottom of the pan as she heated the milk. I made it last night for the Geek who didn't grow up with this. He drank 2 cups!

Real Hot Cocoa

1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups milk

Mix powder and sugar together in a pan. Gradually add up to 1/4 of a cup of the milk, stirring regularly on medium heat until it is smooth and thick. Add the rest of the milk and stir until hot. Don't boil! Serve with marshmallows (or plain)!

Hershey's has this much more complicated recipe involving salt and vanilla, but just like this is just the right amount of sweet and is so good.
