Raspberry Hot Chocolate

We got some fresh berries from the University Farmers Market and James got the choice of picking blueberry, raspberry or strawberry hot chocolate.  He choose Raspberry.  A very good choice!

The Hot Chocolate

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine the cocoa, sugar and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in boiling water and bring mixture to a boil, stirring continuously. Stir in the milk and heat until hot, but do not boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Serves 4-5.

The recipe we found said to stir in one teaspoon of seedless raspberry jelly, but we did about 1/4 cup of fresh smashed raspberries and just spooned out most of the seeds that floated to the top.
