Baking until the world is full of flour... blended or raw.
Hey  everyone! You know what I love in the winter? Well actually what everyone loves... hot cocoa! We all remember those days after frolicking in the snow when we'd run inside and beg our moms to whip up a quick mug of chocolate goodness. I especially loved the Swiss Miss brand with colorful marshmallows... until I discovered that our pantry was empty. At the time, it was unheard of to not have anymore hot chocolate packets in the cabinet but I guess me and my siblings had been plowing through them. I ended up using Ovaltine in warm milk but the experience was quite scarring. To prevent situations like this unfortunate one, I have adopted a recipe of my own that today, I will share with you! 
Homemade Hot Chocolate
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar (you can make it 1/2 if you have a true sweet tooth)
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 cups of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Your choice of marshmallows (2 large or 6 small per cup)
  1. Combine cocoa, sugar, water, and salt in a saucepan stirring consistently for one minute until the mixture boils.
  2. Stir in the cold milk and vanilla and heat but do not let it boil.
  3. Remove from the heat and ladle into mugs. (Best served immediately)
  4. Enjoy! 
You can add in 1/4 teaspoon of peppermint extract if you are in a minty mood.
You can add in a pinch of cinnamon to add some seasonal flavoring.

I hope you enjoy this exceptional recipe (if I can say so myself :))

Fill the world with flour,
