On winter weekends, when all the neighborhood kids congregate at our house, I swiftly go through about a half-gallon of milk preparing hot cocoa for them.
Usually I use Ovaltine, but last weekend I ran out and began making it according to the recipe on the side of the Hershey's cocoa box.
I don't think I can go back now!
Give it a try and you'll see what I mean...espscially if you are a chocolate-lover such as I...
