Old-Fashioned Cocoa from Scratch1/2 cup Hershey’s cocoa
1 cup of white sugar
1/3 cup of cold water
Enough milk to fill 3 quart saucepan
- Combine 1/2 cup Hershey’s cocoa and 1 cup of white sugar in a three quart saucepan using a wire whisk. I do this while the cocoa and sugar are still dry so that the cocoa will mix in nice and smooth without a bunch of lumps.
- Add about 1/3 cup of cold water and mix until smooth. Bring to a boil and continue to boil it for about a minute, stirring constantly. Don’t worry if it sticks to the sides, it’ll melt back into the cocoa as it heats up.
- Fill the pan with milk, It”ll be a little more than a half a gallon of milk. Stir and heat using medium heat. If you need to walk away from it, just turn it on the lowest heat. I check to see if it’s hot enough by dropping in a miniature marshmallow. It’s ready when the marshmallow just starts to melt. I offer extra milk to my little ones to cool it if they want it.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Happy to be Back Home
