Proper Hot Chocolate (updated for the 90s):
Pour a cup of evaporated skimmed milk (either straight or cut half
with skimmed milk) in a microwave safe container. Nuke for under a
minute until hot and fragrant (do not boil). In cup you will drink
from, put in Droste cocoa and sugar (to your personal taste) and mix.
Add just a little of the heated milk and whisk till smooth. Then,
using a hand blender, beat the remaining milk until frothy (if you use
a good aerating blender (like the Braun) you can approximate a steamed
milk very well). Add frothy milk to the chocolate slurry and blend.
A little vanilla or brandy is also dandy. And butterscotch Shnapps is
out of this world.
