Hot Chocolate

hot chocolate cup

Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? Wintertime and Homemade just make it better as well as healthier.

My super easy, lower sugar, extra creamy recipe (can be doubled)

2 heaping Tbsp unsweetened cocoa

pinch salt (optional but worth it)

2 Tbsp sugar

3 Tbsp hot water

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 cups almond milk ; you can use any milk product, but I think almond milk makes creamiest drink

  • mix cocoa, sugar, salt and water in heavy bottomed pan (I use a whisk)
  • bring to a boil over med heat stirring constantly; boil and stir for about 2 minutes (do not burn, there is no coming back from burnt chocolate)
  • add almond milk and heat until warm; drink gets creamier as it heats. Do not boil
  • Add Vanilla and Enjoy!!
