Tis' the Season to be jolly, fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la. I have my halls decked, presents wrapped and shipped and I am ready to settle in and relax.
I love relaxing with a cup of homemade hot cocoa while sitting next to a roaring fire, and a good book. I think it is the perfect way to end the day. Don't you?
Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Hot Cocoa
Recipe from Hershey's
1/4 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1/2 cup of sugar
3 cups of milk
1 cup of heavy cream

In a small bowl mix sugar and cocoa and set aside. In a saucepan heat milk to just boiling. Once boiling mix 1/3 cup of milk into the cocoa/sugar mixture and stir until creamy, then pour into the hot milk and whisk then stir in vanilla and whisk again.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
