Homemade Hot Cocoa

As a before bedtime treat tonight I made up some fresh hot chocolate using some of the leftover evaporated milk from yesterday's caramel apples. The perfect way to end a day for little tummy's..and pretty good for us Mommies too.


2 tbsp. sugar
3 tbsp cocoa
1 can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
PLUS - some mini marshmallows or whipped cream for garnish

1. Combine sugar and cocoa in a small saucepan. Slowly stir in 1/4 cup of the evaporated milk and form a smooth paste. Stir in remaining evaporated milk, water and vanilla extract.
2. Warm over medium heat, whisking constantly, until hot.
3. Top with marshmallows or whip cream before serving.
