Here's a recipe for Hot Cocoa from the 1974 American Family Cookbook.

5 to 6 tablespoons cocoa, sieved
5 to 6 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Mix cocoa, sugar, and salt in heavy saucepan. Blend in the water. Boil
gently 2 minutes over direct heat, stirring until slightly thickened.
2. Stir in the milk, heating slowly until scalding hot. Remove from heat.
Cover and keep hot, if necessary, over hot water. 3. Just before serving, mix
in the extract. Beat with hand rotary or electric beater until foamy. Serve
steaming hot, plain or with whipped cream, marshmallow cream, or marshmallows.
