Rainy November Days & Chocolate Soup

Rainy November in the Hollow
We’re having some rainy November days in the hollow.  Between the wind and the rain, the last of the leaves have fallen.  These are good days to put a pot of soup on the stove to simmer and then curl up with a good book.  What are you cooking and reading today?

I ran across this vintage recipe and thought you would enjoy it.  I believe that milk would be a good substitute for water in this recipe.

Put three tablespoonfuls of cocoa into a double boiler, and add gradually one pint of boiling water. Stir for at least five minutes over the fire. Add four tablespoonfuls of sugar, take from the fire and add a teaspoonful of vanilla. Turn this into one pint of cracked ice, and when the soup is cold, turn into the serving cups, and put on the surface a tablespoonful of whipped cream, and serve
