Hot Chocolate – What Could Be Better?
When it is cold outside, the thought of a great cup of Hot Chocolate is about as good as it gets. So here is a simple recipe to make a rich and special hot chocolate that you can make in the microwave and impress your family and friends.
1 (14oz.) can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
½ Cup of unsweetened cocoa
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 ½ cups hot water
Combine all ingredients except marshmallows in a 2 quart glass measuring cup. Microwave on high 8-10 minutes – stirring every 3 minutes. Top with marshmallow
Dennis Dean’s Tip
*To make the marshmallow swirl on the top, place marshmallows in A HEAVY-DUTY /FREEZER BAG –cut one of the corners of the bag off at an angle – now microwave the marshmallows for about 15 to 30 seconds – checking every 10 seconds until marshmallow is melted – remove from microwave carefully – HOT. Squeeze the bag and form a swirl on top of the cocoa – if you have a torch – you can crisp the top of the marshmallow.
This hot chocolate can stay refrigerated for 5 days – so it is always ready for your Holiday guests!
