I love hot chocolate.  My daughters love hot chocolate.  In the past we’ve bought and tried many packaged mixes with some degree of pleasure.  It’s a cold day here in Oklahoma so I thought why not try making some from scratch.  This is a recipe my Mum passed on to me.  Very easy, tasty and rich.

Ingredients:

1 can of sweetened condensed milk (I prefer Eagle Brand)
1/2 cup cocoa or drinking chocolate (I used Cadbury’s this time, yum)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
pinch of salt
3 cups of milk
3 cups of warm water

Mini marshmallows are optional but a nice addition.

Method:

Place all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.  Stir to combine.  Heat all ingredients until the desired temperature but do not boil.  You can keep this covered in the refrigerator for later drinks, warming in the microwave or on the stovetop.

Serve warmed to desired temp and topped with mini marshmallows!  You can also add a dash of peppermint essence for a choc mint treat or for those of us who indulge, try adding a shot of Kahlua.. mmmmmm..  ENJOY and Happy Holidays to you all.

Colleen 🙂
