negative 1 degrees

Q: What do you do when it is negative 1 degrees outside?
(this is not a trick question, it is actually negative 1!)

A: You go to the grocery store after work and fight the cold to bring home milk, in hopes that your wonderful roommate might make up a batch of her delicious hot cocoa. This is sure to warm even the coldest of hands!
In case your roommate doesn't make hot cocoa for you on freezing cold nights (yet), here is Kelsey's recipe:

Kelsey's hot cocoa
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of cocoa powder
A dash of salt
A generous dash of cinnamon
1/3 cup of hot water
4 cups of milk

1. Stir together the sugar, cocoa powder, salt and cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Stir in water and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a boil. Boil and stir for 2 minutes. Add milk, stirring constantly and heat till serving temperature. Don't boil!

2. Serve in a nice mug with a homemade marshmallow on top.

Guaranteed to warm your heart and soul.
Happy sipping!
