I really like to put either marshmallow creme in mine, or koolwhip with a dash of cinnamon. Yummm! When I was in high school, I worked at McDonalds and I tried vanilla icecream in it. Believe it or not, it was good and cooled it off just enough.

This is very basic but it tastes really good. In fact, this recipe has got many positive reviews. Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn't scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature.
