The results were well worth the work!
Madison handled the negotiations and the contract price for brass polishing was homemade hot chocolate for dessert :) I think Brock and I lucked out!
Here is the delicious recipe for our homemade hot chocolate:
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups milk
3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup half-and-half
1. Combine the cocoa, sugar, and salt in a saucepan.
Blend in the boiling water. Simmer and stir for about 2
minutes. Watch that it doesn't scorch.
2. Stir in the milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil!
Remove from heat and add vanilla and half and half.
Enjoy! This is truly a treat.
