Homemade Hot Cocoa

Hot cocoa is basically essential to this time of year. With freezing temperatures outside, sometimes the best remedy for a long, cold day of work, school, or snowball fights is a big mug of hot cocoa. Now don't get me wrong, I love a good hot toddy as much as the next girl, but nothing quite hits the spot like hot cocoa. I also love it because it's one of the things Joel loves to make. If hot chocolate isn't good enough, paired with love and good intentions it's practically heaven!

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 heaping Tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp icing sugar
  • 3 cups milk


1. Mix together the 1/4 cup sugar, heaping tablespoon of cocoa and teaspoon of icing sugar. Use the back of a spoon to work out any chunks in the cocoa.

2. Add the vanilla and salt and mix.

3. Heat the milk in a small pot on medium-low heat. 

4. Paste the powdered mix (1) by adding a bit of milk(2) and giving in a good stir to get the entire mixture wet (3). This allows for easy integration later and avoids chunky, unmixed powder floating on the top of your drink.

5.Add the mixture to the pot of milk and heat, constantly stirring until hot. 

Yum! Time to wrap some presents. I made some awesome custom stamped paper and I'm stoked to share it soon!
