Perky's Rich Caffeinated Peppermint Hot Cocoa

It's chilly this morning and I am now curled up under an afghan on my couch enjoying a piping hot cup of Perky's Rich Caffeinated Peppermint Hot Cocoa. All the ingredients are on the shelf. The cooler temperatures of fall have been calling out to me to start making my cold weather favorites, so I thought I would share.
What a great holiday gift basket this would make for a perky friend.

Perky's Rich Caffeinated Peppermint Hot Cocoa

1 cup of milk
2 t. of sugar
2 T. of Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa
1 packet of Starbucks VIA Peppermint Mocha (this adds caffeination)
(personally I wait until the end of the holiday season and stock up)
Dash of salt
¼ vanilla

Pour the milk into a small sauce pan and whisk in all the other ingredients until piping hot. Pour into your favorite mug. Add whipped cream or marshmallows if you wish. Enjoy!

This recipe was adapted from the one cup recipe on the Hershey's website
2 T. sugar
2-3 t. Hershey's Cocoa
Dash of salt
1 cup milk
1/4 t. vanilla extract

Storing powered cocoa: On the Hershey Company FAQ they state “Cocoa is considered a non-perishable item which should maintain quality if store at room temperature in a tightly sealed container.” Sounds good to me. I tend to keep a lot of cocoa around.
