I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Hot Cocoa

This is a great drink to make up after being out in the snow. Who doesn't like a nice mug of hot cocoa on a chilly day?

(serves 4)

*1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
*1/2 cup white sugar
*dash of salt
*1/3 cup boiling water
*3 1/2 cups whole milk
*1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
*1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

~Combine the cocoa, sugar & salt in a saucepan.
~Blend in boiling water.
~Bring to an easy boil, stirring constantly.
~Bring heat down and simmer for 2 minutes.
(stirring every once in a while to prevent scorching)
~Stir in milk and heat until very hot (do not let it boil).
~Remove from heat and pour into mugs.
~Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa.
