Hot Cup of Cocoa

When it gets cold, my kids start wanting to pull out the Christmas CDs and DVDs, and I have to admit they don't have to beg too hard. We love Christmas, and one of our favorite CDs is the Von Trapp Children Christmas CD. There's a link below that you can click on, then check out the playlist on the right. My kids' 2 favorite songs on here are "Please Don't Send Me Fruitcake" and "Hot Cup of Cocoa". It's well worth your money.

Here's a great recipe for a hot cup of cocoa for a crowd.

1/4 tsp. salt
8 c. water
3 tsp. vanilla
1 c. whipping cream
Mix first 3 ingredients in large pot, and slowly whisk in water. Heat to almost boiling (CAUTION: will boil over quickly, so watch carefully!). Remove from heat, then add vanilla and whipping cream. Serve immediately. Serves 12.
