I was making cornmeal mush this morning and suddenly decided it would be fun to change it up a bit. So I added cocoa powder. It turned out really yummy, similar to chocolate Malt-O-Meal, but at a fraction of the cost. The kids and I just ate it up! It makes a fun change to what has become a breakfast staple at our house.
1 cup corn meal
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup cold water
3 cups boiling water
Combine corn meal, salt, cocoa, vanilla, and cold water; pour into boiling water, stirring quickly.
Return to boil, stirring constantly.
Lower heat to medium-low, cover and cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve with milk and sugar (we like using brown sugar).
