It’s official, winter is finally here! The sunshine, oh how deceiving it is – as much as I want to walk around and see what’s happening in the neighborhood, that temp reading on my phone keeps me indoors! When the weather is like this, all I can think about is warm winter drinks! Hot cocoa to be specific, and not just any hot cocoa, Mom’s hot cocoa. It might be the easiest recipe and most likely, you have everything you need in your pantry and fridge: milk, one can of evaporated milk (the skim kind works just fine) and Hershey’s powdered chocolate.
For four servings: stir together 2-3 cups milk, evaporated milk and 1/2 cup of chocolate (don’t be afraid to add more!) in a pot on the stove until it just starts to boil. Pour into mugs and top with marshmallows or whip cream. The end result: a warm, creamy, chocolate drink!
Enjoy! And stay warm!
