    I followed the recipe except that I substituted some canned unsweetened condensed milk for some of the fresh. Took about 5 minutes total, including pulling out the saucepan! It worked out great - very chocolatey and old-timey - the kind your mom might have made for you when you came in from playing in the snow. I much prefer this to the packaged instant - highly recommended! :P
