Hershy's Favorite Hot Cocoa Unverified!

Getting the Challenge Cocoa Brownies brought me in contact with other box-side recipes, such as this one from Hershy's. You'd think they'd know a thing or two about cocoa. Their website (http://www.hershykitchens.com) is some serious mojo, best visited after near-complete satiation.


  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • dash salt
  • 4 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup vanilla extract


In a saucepan, mix water, sugar, cocoa and salt. Bring to a boil and stir at boil for two minutes. Stir in milk and bring to heat but do not boil.

Mix in vanilla and serve.
