Hot chocolate

The Kiddo loves him some Polar Express. He loves the hot chocolate song and wanted to make some to enjoy while we watched the movie. And by “enjoy” I mean “direct me to drink on his behalf” because he has very strict rules about drinking anything other than milk and water. Alrighty then.

This is actually so easy that it barely deserves to be called a recipe. Don’t you love that kind of recipe?

Stir together in a mug:

  1. 3 teaspoons cocoa powder
  2. 3 teaspoons sugar
  3. Pinch of salt

Now add either boiling water or steaming hot milk and stir. Add marshmallows at will.

Feel free to entertain your taste buds by adding peppermint syrups, Bailey’s, cinnamon, etc.

That’s all. Isn’t that easy? Don’t you want to quit buying those little packets?

Stay warm! 🙂

  1. All winter I was making hot chocolate like this! Only, less sugar, and I would love to use dark cocoa! YUUUUUUM! And that’s so funny that Kiddo wants you to make it, but he won’t drink it!

  2. El Paso version: add a pinch of cinnamon, and a healthy pinch of dark red chile powder (with whatever degree of heat you like. I use ancho.) Kahlua works too. 😉 You can halve the sugar, use dark cocoa, and make a Meximocha, which I love to feel guilty about drinking.
