Simple DIY Hot Cocoa Recipe!

Here is a simple and easy hot cocoa recipe to help warm you up this season!


-2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (you can find this in the baking section of your local grocery store)

-1 to 2 tablespoons sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)

-pinch of salt

-1 cup milk, almond milk or any combination of milk, half-and-half, or cream

-1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


Whisk together the cocoa, sugar, salt, and about 2 tablespoons milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until cocoa and sugar are dissolved.

Whisk in the rest of the milk and heat it over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until it is hot. Stir in the vanilla and serve.
