I am posting this for kids and anyone else! I haven't tried it but I'm saving it for cooler weather! From the Favorite Brands cookbook. See note at bottom for directions to make 1 cup. This recipe serves 4.
Combine sugar, cocoa, salt, and hot water in a 1 quart microwave safe measuring cup.
Microwave at HIGH for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until boiling.
Add milk, stir and microwave an additional 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until hot.
Stir in vanilla and blend well.
* This serves 4 but for 1 cup, place 2 heaping teaspoons sugar with 1 heaping teaspoons cocoa and a tiny dash of salt in microwave safe mug. Add 2 teaspoons cold milk and stir until smooth. Fill cup more milk and microwave on HIGH for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes or until hot. Stir to blend. There is no mention of vanilla here but it may be a typo. I would add a drop!
