Yummy Hot Cocoa

My kids love hot cocoa. This week we got hit with a cold snap and my kids really wanted some hot cocoa after playing outside, but we were out of those all so handy cocoa packets. So off I set to find a way to make some hot cocoa for my kids with out me having to make a trip to the store. After some digging through my cabinets and pantry and then Googleing recipes for hot cocoa. I combined some of the recipes to best use the ingredients that I had available and make enough for my family. It was a snap to make and my kids loved it. Sunny Bunny said it was like drinking warm melted chocolate ice cream. I decided in light of that I would share the recipe I used. This recipe made 5 servings for us.
