Yummy! Just what I needed for a cold Iowa morning. Perfect amount of sweetness and chocolate. Simple to make too. This is a keeper!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 quart milk
  • 13 cup sugar
  • 14 cup cocoa
  • 14 teaspoon vanilla (or 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon)
  • whipped cream, for topping


  1. In saucepan, combine sugar and cocoa.
  2. Add a few tablespoons of milk and heat over medium high heat, stirring constantly.
  3. The heat will make it easier to dissolve the cocoa.
  4. When the sugar, cocoa and milk have formed a paste, add the remainder of the milk plus the vanilla or cinnamon and heat until steaming.
  5. Pour into mugs, top with a bit of whipped cream and serve immediately.
