Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe

email

img_5698-200x200

You ever have one of those mornings when everything, and I mean everything, goes right? Today was one of those days for me. The quiche was perfect. The little cinnamon maple danishes where adorable and perfectly maple-y.


The real topper was this homemade hot chocolate. I promise you will love it or I will take down my blog. Well, no I guess I wouldn’t do that. I love being bloggy but I still promise that you’ll dig it more than this season of The Bachelor.

Whisk together in a saucepan:

  • 6 tablespoons of Hershey’s Dark Cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons of sugar
  • A dash of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1 1/2 cups of water

Stir with a whisk often until hot but not boiling.

My favorite touch is to add a couple, few, four, five little scoops of ice cream. It is the perfect mix of hot and cold in one cup. It’s also an amazing touch after the cocoa is chilled.

Cheers!
