Quick Hot Cocoa

                 Cold Outside? Warm Up In Minutes!

Hi everybody :)

Is everyone feeling the cool breeze of Jack Frost yet? It's slowly creeping down to the southern states. You want a quick and easy chocolaty solution to warming up in a matter of minutes? This hot cocoa may be your answer. In 5 ingredients or less and 3 minutes over the stove top help makes this recipe a quick fix. It is done in single-servings but can easily be doubled or tripled. 

Quick Hot Cocoa adapted Southern Living 1982 Annual Recipes
2 teaspoons cocoa; or to taste
2 teaspoons sugar
; or to taste
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup milk
Miniature marshmallows (optional)

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil, 
Boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in milk; heat to boiling point (212°). 
Top with marshmallows, if desired. Serve immediately. Yield: 1 cup.

What I Did and/or Think:

For Quick Mocha Hot Cocoa add about 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee or 1 teaspoon Kahlua to your mix.

I think this is a good basic recipe, that can be adjusted to your taste so it's worthy of a REPEAT

ENJOY! Come again...
