To make Hershey's hot cocoa, mix sugar, cocoa and salt in a mug and add heated milk and vanilla extract. The recipe takes around two minutes to prepare. There are also a number of easy variations to make to the recipe to enhance the flavor.
To make Hershey's hot cocoa, start with 2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 to 3 teaspoons of Hershey's cocoa, and a small amount of dash salt. Mix these ingredients in a large mug. While you're doing this, heat a cup of milk in the microwave on high for a minute to a minute and a half. Slowly add the milk to the mug, mixing to completely blend the ingredients. Finally, add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the mixture, and mix thoroughly.
Variations on the recipe include making small alterations to the ingredients. To make a richer mug of cocoa, simply increase the amount of cocoa to 2 tablespoons. Similarly, you can use nonfat milk instead of regular milk for nonfat cocoa. For a sugar-free recipe, omit the sugar from your initial mixture. Next, proceed as normal, but use nonfat milk. When you stir in the vanilla, also stir in 2 tablespoons of your choice of sugar substitute.
