Hits the Spot!

Instant cocoa cannot even compare to the real thing!. Splenda in place of sugar is great, too.

snow day lifesaver

We live on the southeast coast and my children have not seen snow in 4 years. Imagine our fun to wake to 4 inches this morning. I didn't have any hot chocolate mix in the house, but I had Nestle cocoa powder. I looked up the recipe and the kids thought it was the best hot chocolate ever.

Yummy with a couple of changes

We use a bit less sugar when we make it because otherwise it's just too sweet. I also love putting in different flavors than the vanilla extract. One of my favorites is a touch of orange extract :)

Love this recipe! Just the way my mom made it when I was a kid!

Old-fashioned Goodness

Sounds like the traditional way to make hot cocoa (the way we did when I was a child, before the little instant packets came out!) Once you have it this way, the other way is just not as good!
