How to Make Hot Chocolate

2019-11-13 08:16 #0 by: Evelina

Heat up 1 cup of milk (your choice of milk - you can choose plant based milk if preferred) on the stove.

In a separate cup mix together equal parts sugar and cocoa powder. About 1.5 tablespoons each.

Add a touch of vanilla extract and salt.

Then had a touch of water and whisk until smooth.

Add this mixture to the milk once it is hot. Whisk together.

Then serve! Top with mini marshmallows or whipped cream. I added cinnamon as well 😊

I recently had one of my best cups of chocolate ever.

My wife brought me sandwiches and a big cup of hot chocolate while I was outside in the dark, near-freezing temperature, building a support for solar panels. It was late, I was tired, and I hadn't had dinner. She asked if I wanted her to make a sandwich. I said yes. When she brought me sandwiches, she also gave me hot chocolate. It was so good and made that evening the best one this year.

It isn't always about the best recipe, but the context. 😀
