Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup Dutch cocoa or any dry cocoa
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • whipped cream (optional)
  • peppermint bark (optional place a small piece in the bottom of each cup and pour warm hot chocolate over the peppermint bark if desired)
Instructions
  1. Place the sugar and cocoa in a saucepan and blend the mixture. Add the water and stir until blended. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir constantly for two minutes. Add the milk slowly and heat thoroughly, but do not boil. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.

    Please note*** If you want to make a dry mix: My Thrive Instant Milk Can states: 1 cup water + 2 tablespoons dry milk = 1 cup milk. It also says (to make it easy) 4 cups water + 2/3 to 1 cup dry milk = 4 cups milk. My recipe calls for 4 cups milk so I would add 1 cup dry milk to the recipe with a note to add 4 cups water when making this recipe with the 1 cup Instant Dry Milk.
