Craving hot cocoa?
No more wasted packaging and money buying individually packaged cocoa mixes: just make your own. In a large microwaveable mug, put 1 & 1/2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa (I use Hershey's Special Dark) and a pinch of salt. Stir together then add a tablespoon or so of milk and stir to mix...slowly add more milk, about 6-8oz. or so, until your cocoa is the color you like. Nuke in microwave for 1 minute on high, then add large marshmellows and nuke up to 20 seconds, being careful to watch so it doesn't overflow. Then drink!! Adjust the amounts to suit your own preference.
