    Sittin' here drinkin' some hot chocolate......boy, it's good. Haven't had any made this way in a long time, and it's about the simplest thing in the world. I've tried a lot of different hot cocoas; most every mix in the store, and all kinds of homemade ones. I still think this tastes the best - just like my mama made.

    Canned evaporated milk, diluted as instructed on can (regular vitamin D, gotta go with the fat here - the 2% and skim evaporated will NOT taste the same)

    Nestle Nesquik Chocolate Flavor (regular or sugar-free)

    For each good-sized mug of milk, you will need to add about 3 Tbsps. of Nesquik (or to taste). Add it before heating the milk, which can be done on the stovetop or in the microwave, and whisk/stir well to dissolve. I only make one mug at a time, takes approximately 2 minutes to get to the right temperature in my microwave. If you're making enough for multiple mugs, you're on your own as far as the microwaving goes. On the stovetop, heat over medium-low until it just reaches the scalding point, stirring occasionally; pour into mug(s) and enjoy!

    The part I like is when you forget and the hot chocolate boils over in the microwave!!!!!:big_smile::smile2:Hard to get your head in there to lick it up particularly if its an over the stove model!!!!!!:tounge_out:To improve your recipe NOT that it needs improving Princess I add 1 once of Baileys Irish Cream which provides me the one ounce of alcohol recommended by the Harvard Med School.For anyone over 40 you may add additional onces as needed because the alcohol will have to force itself through hardened ,clogged arteries and some will be lost in the process!!!:big_smile::smile2:Nothing better on a cold winters night and I have even made it on the boat minus the Baileys of course.:wink:

    Well my darlin' brother, nobody said you couldn't have your marshmallows and eat 'em too. My mom and sis both like it with marshmallows, but if I'm gonna put somethin' extra in mine - it would probably be whipped cream. Otherwise I'm a plain Jane far as hot chocolate goes.....oh wait, Jim's idea ain't half bad :wink:.

    You know what's good with hot chocolate? Y'all are gonna think I'm weird, but PRETZELS. Makes a good combination IMO. :eek:oooh:

    If you're using a microwave, I'd advise heating the milk before adding the mix; every time I've tried heating with mix, I get a geyser.
