Homemade Breakfast Cocoa Recipe

I got this Breakfast Cocoa recipe from my neighbor who is an excellent cook. This Breakfast Cocoa is so tasty that I cannot resist serving it as a Breakfast often. A good way to use up cocoa is to make some amazing Breakfast Cocoa. In my view, if one calls oneself a good cook, one must have a personal recipe of Breakfast Cocoa, just like I do.
