With this chilly weather, I’ve become obsessed with hot cocoa. It’s come to be my little treat to myself after a long day, and it’s somehow very relaxing too! Well recently, I ran out of hot chocolate mix and I didn’t want to make a special trip to the store to get more – so I set out to find my own recipe so I could make my own homemade hot cocoa. And to my surprise, it was actually really good!
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
Heat up 1 cup of milk and add in a dash of vanilla (optional). Stir in 2 tablespoons of your cocoa mixture, and maybe more depending on how sweet you want it!
Top with whipped cream or marshmallows, of course! 🙂 And enjoy.
Note: A special thank you to Momables for introducing me to her unique recipe. I varied mine a bit but her recipe helped me gain a foothold!
