I mixed the cocoa and sugar in a glass and added a small amount of cold water....just enough to make a paste. Then added a little of the milk and stirred until blended. Then added the rest of the milk. No need to microwave. Tasted good....not quite like commercial chocolate milk, or the kind made with purchased chocolate syrup, but still good.

Over-sweet and insufficiently chocolaty for my tastes. And my microwave broke AFTER I tagged this recipe for PAC. But substituting boiling water instead of microwaving 30 seconds worked just fine to dissolve everything.

I needed one cup of chocolate milk for a recipe and used this recipe. The recipe made more than I needed so I had to drink the rest. lol Thank you for posting this recipe!
