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.
