This blog is rated C for catastrophic
I understand that that what I’m about to share here is frightening and truly shocking, but please, bear with me….and have hope for me and with me of a safe and satisfactory resolution.
I am out of hot cocoa mix. ME! Javadawn. There is nothing but crumbs in the container. Shocking, I know, but I knew I had to confess it to you all.
Sadly, this is not the end of this catastrophe. Jeff is on shut down. This means he is not working at his job. No work means no pay. No pay means no grocery extras. Therefore, my normal, wonderful, time tested recipe – which calls for something I only buy for cocoa mix (Quik) is out of the realm of possible.
Perhaps you’re wondering why this is cause for concern…perhaps you’ve heard me rave that Molls’ recipe (1 c milk, to 2 T honey, 2 T cocoa powder and 1 T coconut oil…and sometimes a drop of orange essential oil) is simply sublime and can not be beaten. You would be correct, I do indeed make such claims. However, the cows are on Christmas vacation (they’re freshening them for the next few weeks) and we can’t get sufficient milk to make said hot cocoa. So, instant must suffice. (The things we sacrifice in life are simply beyond my ken) 😉
SO, would someone please take compassion on me and suggest an alternative instant cocoa recipe that doesn’t require Quik?? Let me tell you what I have in my pantry, so you don’t tempt me with something decadent that I can’t afford/don’t have and thereby wound me further. 😉 Plenty of delicious Dutch process cocoa, sucanat, cane juice, vanilla (sorry, no powder, only liquid. Uh, I guess that’s rawther moot, then, eh?) 🙄 some powdered sugar, a large container of creamer, powdered milk, salt, uh….what else might I need? OH, powdered coconut milk….. Um….that’s all I can think that we might use.
Please, won’t someone come to my rescue???? I thank you in advance. My family thanks you. (We will have 3 of us PMSing any day now. Instant cocoa is NEEDED!!!!!)
