Here is the recipe:
In saucepan beat 2 1/2 cups milk, 1/3 cup sugar, ground nutmeg (to taste) and 6 eggs. Cook over med heat until thickened but DO NOT OVERCOOK OR BOIL. Add a splash of vanilla. Cool pan quickly in sink of cold water. I added a spash of half and half, but not necessary. Chill.
I also made hot cocoa. Way too many scary ingredients in the mixes from the store, and the expensive ones that contained high quality ingredients are essentially the same as in this recipe made from scratch:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder (Hersheys)
dash of salt
1/3 cup hot water
In saucepan, mix and bring to a boil. Boil for two minutes. Add dash of vanilla.
Add 4 cups milk and heat on low. Do not boil. Serve hot.
