how I make hot chocolate:
I coulda got the idea from anywhere, I guess, but the truth is that it came from a martha stewart kids holiday edition two years ago: take equal parts cocoa and white sugar, mix mix mix them together until they are totally blended and put it in a jar. that's my cocoa mix and I now make some up each time it gets chilly out. a cup of soy milk in the microwave and then stir in the powder... however much looks right. if I'm making it for all of us I'll heat the milk in a pan on the stove instead... I'm not making like it's healthy or anything, but it is way cheaper than prepackaged hot chocolate. this morning mine is embellished with leftover thanksgiving whipped cream.
