MMHM: Winter Treat: Homemade Hot Cocoa

If your kids are anything like mine, as soon as the weather gets cold they ask for hot cocoa all the time. I hate buying the prepackaged mixes that are filled with artificial junk…this homemade recipe is super easy and your kids will love helping you make it. A great winter treat for snow days! I make homemade whipped cream with this as well sometimes and add it on top.

Enjoy 🙂 Jenn


Hot Cocoa Recipe

1-2 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa (depending on your preference)

1/4-1/2 cup of sugar (again, depending on how sweet your children like drinks)

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla

2 cups of milk (give or take)

In a small saucepan mix cocoa powder and sugar, then add one cup of milk and stir. Turn on heat, stirring and bring to a slow boil. Next slowly add more milk and stir. Serve and enjoy!!

Homemade Whipped Cream Recipe:

1 cup of heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons of sugar

1 teaspoon of pure vanilla

Whip all ingredients until consistency is that of whipped cream (peaks should form).
