Creamy Hot Cocoa Recipe 

There's no better way to warm up on a chilly winter day than a hot mug of creamy cocoa with some friends! 


- ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

- ¾ cup white sugar

- 1 pinch salt

- ⅓ cup boiling water

- 3½ cups milk

- ¾ tsp vanilla extract

- ½ cup half-and-half cream


1) In a saucepan, mix together the cocoa. sugar & a pinch of salt. Slowly whisk into the boiling water & bring the mixture to an easy boil as you stir. Then simmer & stir for about 2 minutes.

2) Make sure it doesn't scorch. Then stir in 3½ cups of milk & heat until very hot, but not to a boil. remove from heat & add vanilla.

3) Lastly split between 4 mugs, add the cream to bring it to the perfect temperature, then share with 3 of your loved ones. ☕💚


For an even tastier experience, add a handful of marshmallows or a mountain of whipped cream!
