The oldest boy made homemade hot chocolate today and all of us thought it tasted like Starbucks! I actually thought it was a little better! He's racking up quite a few recipes now. He's even got himself a notebook keeping them all for the future. So neat! I'm glad he likes to cook and try new things. And we're all glad he likes to share them with us!

Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to a boil, stirring continually. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Be careful not to scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and half-and-half and condensed milk. Pour into mugs and serve!Pin It Now!
