Rich Hot Cocoa (Just Three Ingredients)

Rich Hot Cocoa (Just Three Ingredients)

Today is a grey, drizzly day. What better time for hot cocoa and popcorn? Instead of analyzing the list on the side of a box of Swiss Miss, you can make your own and keep it simple.

For three generous mugs, gently heat the following:

5 cups fresh milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 tbsp local honey

If you like your hot cocoa sweeter, double the honey. For a lighter cup, more like "milk chocolate" double the honey and use only two tablespoons cocoa powder. Mint exact or vanilla extra can dress it up a little. 

[We received a Mr Coffee Cocomotion hot chocolate maker for a housewarming gift a few years back. I laughed out loud because I had always wanted a stirring hot plate for the kitchen like I used in my past life... Here is a simple kitchen appliance that uses the same principle as the laboratory staple: a little magnet whizzing around to stir the contents as it heats. No more scorched milk!]

I shared this recipe with Fight Back Friday,  Monday ManiaSlightly Indulgent Tuesday, Full Plate Thursday,  Simple Lives Thursday and Real Food Wednesday.
