Recipe

Inexpensive, easy, and good.

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup milk

Directions

Mix cocoa, sugar, and salt in a small saucepan, slowly stir in water. Heat and stir over moderately low heat until mixture boils, then boil slowly, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Add milk and heat to scalding but do not boil.

Variations

Cocoa for a Crowd (12 servings): Mix ¾ cup cocoa with ¾ cup sugar and ½ teaspoon salt in a large saucepan. Gradually stir in 1 quart warm water, set over low heat, and heat, stirring now and then, 8–10 minutes. Add 2 quarts milk and heat to scalding. Serve in mugs, sprinkled, if you like, with cinnamon or nutmeg or topped with marsh-mallows.

Iced Cocoa: Prepare cocoa as directed, then cool, stirring occasionally. Pour over ice cubes, top with a dollop of whipped cream, and sprinkle with cinnamon.

    When I was young my best friend's mom would make hot cocoa in a similar manner but way easier. She mixed the cocoa and sugar in the mug and made a paste by adding a bit of boiling water. Then she topped it all up with about 1/2 evaporated milk and 1/2 boiling water. For some reason the evaporated milk made it yummier. I never did quite get into the habit of buying hot chocolate mixes...

    What memories. sigh.
