375 gr. sugar
1 dl. milk
1 heaped tablespoon cocoa powder
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Allow to bubble for 5 minutes, stirring all the time. Take off the heat and cool, stirring continuously. When a drop falling from the spoon stays lying on the surface for a moment, and when the surface becomes dull, pour into greased moulds, lying on a greased surface. Allow to set for a few hours.
The trick is not to pour the mixture too soon, as it won’t set at all. Too late is all right, although the shapes will be wobbly!
Happy St Nicolas!
