Hot Cocoa

Hello Loves!

As I wrote in my Christmas Bucket List I wanted to make homemade hot chocolate. Hot chocolate is the best part of the holidays and winter. Even though it doesn't get very cold here, we have to pretend and make ourselves hot chocolate! I like peppermint hot chocolate to further push the Christmas feeling.


Ingredients:
- Milk
- Cocoa powder
- Chocolate
- Candy Cane or peppermint sticks (optional)
- Mini marshmallow (optional)
- Coffee (if you prefer it being mocha)



Steps:

one// warm the milk. you can do this in the microwave or on the stovetop. If you are going to make a lot you might want to do it on the stovetop
two// add the chocolate to the milk. Keep warming the milk and stirring the mixture until the chocolate melts completely. Add more chocolate to make it more chocolate-y
three// add the cocoa powder to make the hot chocolate more velvety and darker. If you add too much chocolate you will need to add sugar so be careful. (Here is where you would add the coffee for mocha)
four// serve the hot chocolate and put a candy cane to stir it instead of a spoon! This will add the peppermint flavor to the hot chocolate!


Stay Warm
Enjoy!
XOXO
