We have been making this hot chocolate since we were kids. No chocolate in a bag can compare. We make this for special.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir cocoa powder and sugar in a pot.
  2. Add water and stir.
  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil two minutes.
  4. Add milk (I use 1 can canned milk and equal water, plus 1 cup of whole milk). Heat until hot.
  5. Add vanilla and serve.

Very good! Used a little less sugar than called for, so it was more semi-sweet. MUCH better than prepackaged. Easy too.

I forgot to rate the stars so I came back. It deserves a 5!
