Creamy Steamy Hot Cocoa

5 stars

Im still on a chocolate hunt..  Im completely out of chocolate chips, but I sure do have cocoa powder.  There are many things you can make the cocoa powder, from fudge, to brownies.. just about anything really.  But lets settle for something warm and relaxing like Hot Cocoa.  Oh and what about something nice to stir it with..  If you are like me, you have a ton of candy canes left over from Christmas that you are about to throw away...  So yummy.. I am not really sure why I dont eat candy canes more often, they are very yummy all by themselves.

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt and water in a saucepan. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn't scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add some whip topping or marshmallows to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature.
