Hot chocolate is a delicious must-have in my household. Paired with marshmallows and whipped cream, it's a necessity on a cold winter afternoon. Sadly, I ran out of the hot chocolate powder bought at the grocery store, so I decided, 'Why not make some homemade?'. And so the search began, this one recipe standing out. I made a ton and put it in a container for later use.
- 3 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 1/4 cups cocoa powder
- a sprinkle of salt (optional, I chose not to)
1. Simply whisk all together, then transfer to a container for later use.
2. To prepare a single cup of cocoa, microwave the milk in your mug, then add 1-2 tablespoons hot chocolate powder, stirring until combined. Decorate with marshmallows, whipped cream, even crushed candy cane or peppermint.
