“make hot cocoa”
Avery and I made real hot cocoa from scratch tonight. It was a nice “project” that didn’t take too long and we got to enjoy it right away!
We enjoyed our hot cocoa in pretty mugs (she picked out) with no marshmallows. The girl doesn’t like marshmallows!! I think she liked it a lot, she asked when we were going to make it again!!
We used the recipe on the cocoa box;
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/3 cup hot water
4 cups milk
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
* mix sugar,cocoa & salt in sauce pan, add water
* cook & stir over medium heat until mixture boils, boil & stir for 2 minutes
* add milk & heat, do not boil.
* remove from heat, add vanilla
Next time, I’ll add peppermint extract instead of vanilla.
