First and foremost - this is not rocket science, just something my sweet mommy made for us growing up. I happily make this for my girls when I can. They LOVE it, request it, and would eat it weekly if I made it. As with other favorites, I don't have a recipe but do have sisters who have great memories. Anyways, I love making something delicious for my kids that my Mom made for us - something sweet about it.
Mom's Chocolate Oatmeal
3c Quaker Oats (I used Quick 1 Minute)
1/2 C Sugar
1/2 C Cocoa Powder
3 1/2 C water
dash of salt
Boil water, then add cocoa and sugar. Stir to mix in. Stir in oats and cook about 1 min over med heat, stir to keep from sticking or burning. Taste oatmeal and add cocoa or sugar if needed. Everyone likes it different.
Serve in deep bowls with a splash of milk.
