massey hot cocoa

this is my mom's famous recipe - made famous because it has traveled the country by everyone who has ever tasted it & begged for the recipe!

{in a regular mug with whipped cream}

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 teaspoon salt
5 cups water
1 can evaporated milk {NOT non-fat!}
2 cups milk or half 'n' half or heavy cream

1. mix together dry ingredients with water in a soup pot over medium heat until completely blended together {no more cocoa lumps}, & bring to a simmer.

2. add evaporated milk & regular milk. {we prefer half 'n' half to make it richer! and we've been known to make it with heavy cream...} heat through.

serve with mini marshmallows on top or whipped cream.

if you want to enjoy it the massey way, serve it in a soup mug so you get a bigger serving of chocolate & more surface area for marshmallows!
