In our house, my husband is the maker of the hot cocoa. I've never done it. Not even once. I'm sure I could do it, it's simple enough. But I enjoy it when my sweet husband takes to the kitchen to make us hot chocolate and popcorn for our cozy cuddle-under-a-blankie movie nights.
So today I'm going to let him show you how to make your own easy and delicious homemade hot chocolate. I will just play the role of fearless reporter; taking pictures, typing out the recipe, and savouring the delicious consequences of this blog post!
In a medium sized pot over high heat, heat to boiling
- 3 Tbsp of water
- 6 Tbsp of sugar
- 3 Tbsp of cocoa
- a dash of salt
- a splash of vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups of milk
Heat, stirring regularly, until very hot but not boiling.
Split 1/4 cup of table cream between two mugs.
Pour chocolate mixture over cream and enjoy.
