Though I am not a fan of Martha Stewart's, I have tried her recipe for hot chocolate and it was a good, basic recipe. You can make it even better by using part milk, part cream. I also add some vanilla extract at the end for a little extra flavor.

Makes 5 3/4 cups dry mix or 92 eight-ounce servings
  • 3 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 1/4 cups cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon table salt
  • Whole milk for serving
Directions
  1. In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.
  2. For individual servings, pour 1 cup whole milk into a microwave-safe mug, and microwave on high just until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. For a larger batch of cocoa, warm the milk in a saucepan set over medium-low heat, taking care not to let the milk boil; as it warms, stir in 2 tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.

My kids love the candy cane cocoa I picked up from Candy Cane Cocoa - All Recipes

I am not a big cocoa drinker, but I have to agree with the kids....this one is great! Plus...if you have lots of candy canes during the holidays (kids bring them home from school, etc), then this will help you use them up quicker!

Chocolate ice-cream:


For about two quarts and a half of cream use a pint and a half of milk, a quart of thin cream, two cupfuls of sugar, two ounces of Walter Baker & Co.'s Premium No. 1 Chocolate, two eggs, and two heaping tablespoonfuls of flour.
Put the milk on to boil in a double-boiler. Put the flour and one cupful of the sugar in a bowl; add the eggs, and beat the mixture until light.
Stir this into the boiling milk, and cook for twenty minutes, stirring often.
Scrape the chocolate, and put it in a small saucepan. Add four tablespoonfuls of sugar (which should be taken from the second cupful) and two tablespoonfuls of hot water. Stir over a hot fire until smooth and glossy. Add this to the cooking mixture.
When the preparation has cooked for twenty minutes, take it from the fire and add the remainder of the sugar and the cream, which should be gradually beaten into the hot mixture. Set away to cool, and when cold, freeze.

That's my favorite. I always make some after we've cut down our Christmas tree, and are decorating it. Which will only be in few weeks again.
