Classic Hot Cocoa


I hope you are all having a lovely day filled with family, friends, yummy food, and merry times – whether you celebrate Christmas or not. It is feeling very Christmas-y around here. I just came home from tobogganing with family; it was so much fun!


Here is an extremely simple recipe that will make you feel extra warm and fuzzy tonight. It is a classic recipe that I’ve tweaked a bit to my liking – extra chocolate-y and not too sweet.  Enjoy!


Classic Hot Cocoa:

Serves 1 – just double/triple/octople/etc. as needed 

1.5 tbsp Cocoa Powder

1.5 tbsp Sugar

1 cup 2% Milk

Hot Water, as needed

Whipped Cream, to top

Cocoa Powder, to garnish

1. Heat milk in a saucepan over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Add in cocoa and sugar, whisking to combine well. Pour into mugs, top with whipped cream and a pinch of cocoa powder.

Method #2

1. Combine cocoa powder and sugar in a mug. Top with 1 cup of milk and stir. Microwave for 2 minutes, watching to make sure it does not boil over. Stir again, and top off mug with boiled water. Top with whipped cream and a pinch of cocoa powder.
