The Best Homemade Cocoa

3:35 PM Posted In , Edit This 3 Comments »
This is my favorite-of-all-time hot cocoa, but tastes great cooled and served as chocolate milk as well. It has no powdered milk in it which I LOVE. It tastes rancid to me, so no mix using it tastes good.

The Best Homemade Cocoa

1/2 cup dutch cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
8 cups milk

Heat the cocoa, sugar and water together for 1-2 minutes, till cocoa and sugar are dissolved. Add milk and heat until warm as you desire. Add some vanilla extract if you wish. Serve hot or chilled.

Hi there! I just came upon your recipe (looking for homemade cocoa with no powdered milk, as that is not something I keep around on a regular basis). It looks and sounds delicious! I was wondering how many servings this recipe makes. Thank you!

This recipe makes enough for each of my eight children to have a mugful. If I want a bit more, I nudge the proportions by 1/2.

Thanks so much! My family is doing a late Christmas, and I wanted to use this as a gift to someone, perhaps doubling the recipe, but I wasn't sure. Thanks again!
