This is the classic recipe. The one off the Hershey's can. It was there when I was a little girl sixty years ago, and it's still there.

I remember my mother making it for me on cold winter mornings or after playing outside on a brisk autumn afternoon.

The "dash of salt" is important. It enhances flavor of the chocolate.
