A printable recipe can be found at the bottom of this post!

1/4 cup Cocoa – I use Dutch Processed!
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1/2 cup water
12 oz Evaporated Milk
6 oz Milk
1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla
Dash of Salt


If you do not have Dutch Processed Cocoa – no worries!  Any cocoa will work, but you may want to add an additional tablespoon of sugar with any other cocoa!  If you can get your hands on the Dutch Processed – it is worth it!

Combine the water, sugar and cocoa powder in a medium sauce pan.


Bring the contents to a simmer for 3 minutes, whisking constantly.


Whisk in the milk and the evaporated milk.  Heat thoroughly then remove from heat, add the vanilla and a dash of salt!  Enjoy!
