 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  C             Cocoa (powdered)
    7      teaspoons     Cornstarch (cornflour) -- unsweetened
    1      C             Sugar
    4      C             Milk
 Mix the cocoa and sugar together.
  Dissolve the cornstarch (cornflour) in the water and combine with the
 cocoa-sugar mixture in a medium-sized saucepan.  Stir this until it is a smooth
 paste.  Begin heating this mixture, continuously stirring it with a whisk.
 Gradually pour in the milk.  Continue stirring as you bring it to a simmer.
 Simmer, stirring often, for about 10 minutes.  The cocoa is ready when it
 thickens and is glossy and smooth.
  *  Thick, rich Spanish hot chocolate -- I first tasted this wonderful beverage
 while touring in northern Spain with a choir. It’s not like any hot chocolate
 I've had anywhere else, and I was delighted to find a recipe in “The Vegetarian
 Epicure Book Two.” It is the best hot chocolate in the world (at least to me.)
 *  The consistency of the finished product should resemble chocolate pudding
 that didn't quite set. If you halve this recipe, you'll get just the right
 amount for two large mug-fulls. This cocoa is especially fantastic when you dip
 churros into it (a churro is a sugary, deep-fried, doughnut-like stick, and if
 anyone wants to send out a recipe, I'd be most grateful).
