Cadbury cocoa is powder usually provides a consistent flavour and texture - a sign of its quality - so you can rely on it when cooking to add a scrumptious chocolate flavour to your hot chocolate or recipes.
To make hot chocolate - blend 3 tablespoons cocoa powder with 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl. In a saucepan, heat 4 cups milk until scalding. Mix a small amount of the milk to the cocoa mixture, enough to create a paste, then pour the cocoa mixture into the hot milk and stir until smooth. Stir through 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. Pour into some mugs. Serve with mini marshmellows in each cup!
