I *finally* found a recipe that tastes like the awesome hot cocoa I remember. It's Paula Deen's Dreamy Hot Chocolate.
- 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 6 1/2 cups hot water
- Mini Marshmallows (optional in her recipe...but not at our house)
In a large saucepan, combine sweetened condensed milk, cocoa, vanilla and salt; mix well.
Over medium heat, slowly stir in water; heat through, stirring occasionally. DO NOT BOIL.
Top with marshmallows, if desired.
Tip: Chocolate can be stored in the refrigerator up to 5 days. Mix well and reheat before serving.
When it's cooled I put the hot cocoa in a 2L bottle and keep in fridge. I've also added cooled freshly brewed coffee...a cheap mans mocha!! If you have any questions, please ask. Hope you enjoy the hot cocoa!
