Call it hot chocolate or hot cocoa: either way, it’s the perfect treat on a snowy day. This year I decided to experiment until I came up with an easy, all-natural recipe for hot cocoa to replace the little instant packets that are convenient but full of unnatural chemicals.
This recipe makes one generous serving or two small kid-sized servings. The measurements are forgiving, so don’t worry about being overly precise. If you use 2% or whole milk, it tastes rich enough to be served on the Polar Express!
Easy All-Natural Hot Chocolate:
10 oz. milk (2% recommended)
2 heaping tablespoons baking cocoa
2 heaping tablespoons sugar
¼ teaspoon vanilla
Dash cinnamon (optional)
Warm the milk over medium-low heat. Then whisk in the rest of the ingredients until well-blended. Heat slowly until steaming. Serve with whipped cream, a little more cinnamon, and/or marshmallows, as desired. Enjoy!
