Mix the dry ingredients together then add water.  Use a small deep pan to heat the dry substances and the water. Bring this to a boil. Now add the milk but do not let this mixture boil (it can scorch). Last, add the flavor. Some people enjoy peppermint or cinnamon sticks. Even add frothy whipped cream from the can, which is quite fun for kids.
