Finally, Ammie and Katie present their favorite holiday drink recipes (below) in our Rock the Crock segment. Enjoy Idaho Living!
Tina's Hot Chocolate
In a big pot combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3 heaping tablespoons cocoa, a pinch of salt, and just enough water to dissolve the sugar.
Heat on medium-high until boiling, constantly stirring. After mixture comes to a boil, add 3/4 gallon of milk, 1-2 cups heavy cream, 1 can evaporated milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Heat thoroughly or put in crock pot on low until desired temperature and turn down to warm setting. DELICIOUS!!
**Hot chocolate will separate upon sitting - be sure to stir or mix thoroughly before reheating
