Cocoa - Three Simple Methods

1 liter milk
2 T good quality cocoa powder (I use Van Houten)
3 T sugar

Whisk together and heat in a heavy-bottomed pan. Serve.

If you use powdered milk

Heat in a heavy-bottomed pan:

½ liter water 

Mix in a blender: 

½ liter water
1 C milk powder
2 T good quality cocoa powder 
3 T sugar

When the water starts to have air bubbles (from being heated), pour in the blended ingredients. Turn off fire. Serve.

To make "instant" cocoa powder to mix into a cup of milk

Put into a small air-tight plastic container:

4 T good quality cocoa powder
6 T sugar

Shake to mix. When you want to make a cup of cocoa, heat a mug of milk in the microwave until hot (not boiling). Stir in 1 spoonful of powder. Reheat if necessary.
