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!
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.
