⅔ cup cocoa
1 cups milk
1 pinch salt

Add 1 stick butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla

Stir briskly until mixture cools and looks less glossy. Pour into buttered dish to cool.
Optional: at this point, you can swirl 2 or 3 tablespoons peanut butter into the mixture.

Personal Notes:
This is the recipe that Mamaw Victoria used when making her "cocoa candy" on winter evenings. Soon, she turned it over to the children, as after cooking three meals every day for as much as 10 or 11 kids at home at any given time, and working on the farm, she was not much for preparing extra treats. Needless to say, there are many ways to mess this recipe up, and we learned to eat it, whether with a spoon when it turned out gooey (my batches were usually this variety) or eating the crumbs out of our hands when the finished product was dry and crumbly. Our policy was, "If it tastes sweet, it gets all eat." Of course, that excludes the time Jody used salt instead of sugar in the recipe: NOT KIDDING!
