For those of you who don’t already know, I love hot drinks. I make them year round and hot chocolate is one of my specialties. There are many variations but today I am going to share my base recipe.
¾ cup water
¾ cup milk
1 ½ Tbs. cocoa
1 Tbs. Sugar
¼ Tsp. Vanilla
Pinch of Salt
Optional Additives: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Marshmallows, Peppermint Schnapps.
*If adding alcohol stir it in at the end or it will settle to the bottom of your drink.
Step 1: Fill your mug halfway with water and then finish filling it with milk. ( I use 2% but any milk will work).
Step 2: Microwave until hot (1 ½ – 2 Minutes).
Step 3: Add cocoa, sugar, vanilla extract, salt and any additional spices.
Step 4:Mix thoroughly.
Step 5: Add marshmallows. And Enjoy!
