Do you make your own hot chocolate? I mean make the mix and then add it to warmed milk? It’s so comforting after your day outside in the cold- you know, getting your exercise…
I was gifted hot choc mix one year, along with the recipe and I’ve never looked back
here is the recipe.
1 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder ( use organic if possible)
3/4 Cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper ( optional but worth it)
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container ( a jar works great)
Stir in 1-2 Tbsp mix into 1 cup warmed milk and enjoy
I’ve dyed some wool that sort of reminds me of hot chocolate. I think it would be great for trees or animals too- what do you think?
