What tastes better on cold nights than yummy hot chocolate?! We love hot chocolate and I was thrilled to find this recipe for super easy homemade hot chocolate! Once you try this, you'll never want to use the instant mix again. ha! You can easily double or triple the recipe too!

Homemade Hot Chocolate (recipe from There is no place like home)

Combine cocoa, sugar, and salt in a saucepan. Whisk in boiling water and heat mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring continuously. Stir in milk and heat until hot, but not boiling. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
