Homemade Hot Cocoa

When the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful… make some hot chocolate! We found a great old-fashioned hot chocolate recipe that will warm you up this winter. Ingredients
  • 1 1/3 c Whole milk
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp Vanilla extract
  • Mini-marshmallows or whipped cream for serving
You’ll also need: Instructions
  1. Warm the milk in a small saucepan over low heat until tiny bubbles appear. Remove from heat right before boiling.
  2. Blend the cocoa in a food processor. Put the cocoa, sugar, and vanilla in a mug and stir to combine.
  3. Add one tablespoon of the hot milk to the cocoa mixture and stir – make sure there are no lumps!
  4. Pour the remaining hot milk into the mug and stir well.
  5. Top it off with a handful of marshmallows or whipped cream – or chop up peppermint for a little holiday flare!
