Recipe: Simple Hot Chocolate
December 19, 2009 § Leave a comment
Nothing goes better with a snow storm than a delicious mug of hot chocolate! I love hot chocolate but I don’t love hydrogenated coconut oil in it. Unfortunately, this is what you’ll find in packaged brands of hot chocolate. This is a very simple recipe that you can feel good about drinking and giving to your kids. I love to spike mine with Godiva chocolate liqueur. It’s amazing! The recipe serves 1 but you can easily double or triple the recipe.
- a mug filled with organic milk
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- a few semisweet chocolate chips
- a handful of marshmallows
Fill a large mug about 3/4 of the way with milk, then pour into a small saucepan. Over medium low heat, add the brown sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, and vanilla and stir with a whisk until heated. Add the chocolate chips and continue mixing with the whisk until melted. Pour into the mug and add your marshmallows. Enjoy!
Here’s a picture of a mug I made for my son today…
…and here he is enjoying it!
I hope you’ll give this one a try!
