Is there anything more satisfying on a cold, snow day than a cozy mug of cocoa? I still believe my mama makes the best homemade hot cocoa mix, but I loved the Crock-Pot version my Aunt Michelle made for Christmas so much too! Today I thought I’d share the recipe I’ve been using to make a quick stovetop hot cocoa at my own house.
- 1.5 C milk
- 2 tsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon sugar
- Dash of vanilla extract
I start by warming the milk as I add the cocoa powder, cinnamon sugar, and vanilla to the pot. I bring it to just before boiling, while constantly whisking, before I pour the mix in my mug and top with a spoonful of whipped cream.
This is the cocoa powder I prefer using (it also makes great brownies!):
How do you fix your hot cocoa?
I also just finished a delightful book where hot cocoa was one of the main plot points, so it’s been a extra treat this weekend! 😉
