My husband found this recipe for me on Pinterest as a surprise and made it for me. We were both impressed with how smooth and flavorful it was, but easy at the same time. The recipe and photo come from the blog, mymommystyle.com. This recipe makes 2 small mugs of hot chocolate, but could easily be doubled or tripled.
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 cup hot water
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- whipped cream (optional, but highly recommended)
- peppermint baking chips (also optional, but really delicious)
Combine cocoa, sugar and hot water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add in the milk and heat through, do not boil. Remove from heat and stir well. Top with whipped cream and peppermint chips.
