Rich Hot Cocoa or Carob

  • 12 ounce can evaporated milk
  • 1-1/2 cups hot tap water
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa or carob powder
  • Dash Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Measure the water into a 2-quart sauce pan. Add the sugar, cocoa and salt. Heat the water over a medium flame. Stir the mixture until the cocoa dissolves completely.

Gently bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to a fast simmer and simmer it for about 5 minutes. This will prevent the cocoa and sugar from sinking to the bottom of the cup when you serve it.

Finally add the evaporated milk and stir to blend. Reheat briefly, but don’t boil if you can manage not to. Pour the hot chocolate to smallish cups.

This recipe makes 4 6-ounce size servings. You can double it when you are serving a gaggle of cold children who have just come inside from sledding. It goes really well with cookies, or sandwiches for a good snack on a snowy day. Very Very Rich.

Of coure that’s not the only frugal drink recipe on this site. Try the creamy hot chocolate mix next. It also makes a great gift.

    I have used a similar recipe but it calls for sweetened condensed milk and no sugar. It is my very favorite.

    • How much sweetened condensed milk did you use? Do you have a link for the recipe? I have a lot of sweetened condensed milk and would like another way to use it besides fudge and Key Lime Pie. Thanks, Jennifer!

  2. JENNIFER says:

    Also it uses like 6 cups of water

  3. This was really, really good. Thanks.

  4. Can you do this with soy? I can’t have regular milk anymore… and I miss my nightly hot chocolate before bed…
