Kiddo had a test for allergy and he was asked to come into the lab after 48 hours of giving a shot. It took me an hour and a half of travel, one way, to get to the lab and another 1.5 hours to come back home. And at the lab, all they did was to look into his hand and say that he was fine.
Three hours of travel for a two minute job.
Yet I am not complaining. I am too tired for even that!
All I want now is to sit, relax and have a cup of hot chocolate. It is made more tastier by the fact that it is homemade. Completely.

- Cocoa Powder : 3/4 cup
- Sugar : 1 1/2 cups
- Water : 1 cup
- Vanilla Extract : 1 tsp
- Salt : a pinch
- Mix the cocoa powder, sugar and salt in a thick bottomed pan. Whisk.
- Add water and mix with a rubber spatula so that there are no dry lumps.
- Heat this and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. When it boils, reduce the heat and cook for a further 1 minute.
- Cool and refrigerate. Drizzle over ice creams, make milkshakes or hot chocolate.
Note: Before storing in a bottle, I filtered the syrup using a tea strainer to remove the dregs from cocoa. Else, you can filter when you are making your hot cocoa or milkshake.
