Fall Favorites: Hot Cocoa

I promised a few weeks ago that I would share my favorite hot cocoa recipe... so here it is!

This cocoa is so ridiculously easy and so exponentially better than anything that comes in a packet or a canister that it seems so silly to bother with anything else.  It is also very customizable.  Prefer a real dark chocolate cocoa?  Add less sugar.  Fancy a lip smackingly sweet drink?  Cut back on the cocoa powder.  Easy!

First, ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • dash of salt

First, pour your milk into your mug and microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes, depending on how hot you want your cocoa.

While that is heating, mix together the cocoa powder, sugar, and dash of salt in a little bowl.

Once your milk is heated and your mix is well mixed, pour it in your mug and stir!

When that is well mixed, add the vanilla and stir.

Ta-da! You now have a super amazing mug of hot cocoa!
