Aunt Caroline's Dixieland Recipes/Beverages/Hot Chocolate
One and one-half squares of Baker's Chocolate,
Four teaspoonsful of sugar,
Pinch of salt,
One cup of boiling water,
Three cups of milk,
One-half teaspoonful of vanilla.
Melt the chocolate over hot water. Add the sugar, salt and boiling water. When smooth, add the heated milk and cook twenty minutes in double boiler. Then beat with egg beater and flavor. More sugar may be added if desired.
An excellent substitute for whipped cream to serve with hot chocolate is marshmallows. Drop one in each cup of the hot liquid.
