Thursday Treatz

SNOW DAY!!!!!

Tennessee is getting an early and rare snow day.
Good day to watch it snow and drink a cup of Hot Chocolate,
or  Hot Cocoa as we called it growing up.
Here is an easy one cup at a time recipe from the
Hershey Cocoa website.
It reminds me of the treat mom would make for us
after a day of sledding on the nearby hills.
Snow days didn't happen often in Tennessee,
so we enjoyed each one that we did get.
I have vivid memories of the cocoa in the mid-sized
saucepan simmering on the stove.
This was the time before instant packets of hot chocolate.
Marshmallows would make it an even more special treat.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons HERSHEY'S Cocoa
