Diana's Hot Chocolate
At one point my husband worked as a night watchman for a historical museum. His rounds included a small house on the property where one of the directors lived. Every night during the cold winter months, he’d stop in to make sure she was okay and she’d give him a thermos of homemade hot chocolate. Here’s her recipe. We make it every Christmas morning and give a toast to her memory.
In a 4 or 5 quart saucepan, mix 1/3 c. baking cocoa, a 1/2 c. of sugar, 4 c. of milk and a dash of salt. Add 1 tsp. of vanilla and heat. Stir continually until all ingredients are mixed and cocoa is warmed for drinking. DO NOT BOIL.
Enjoy! Makes 4 cups of hot chocolate.
