Currently it is forty degrees and outside–you know what that means. Last time I checked there are four more days till December comes, so now we all have an excuse to listen to holiday music and drink hot chocolate. But do not settle for a mediocre cup! There are thousands of different variations out there, but this is kind of like all of those combined, but better. After a while of trying to find the perfect ratios of ingredients, I finally came up an easy and super amazing recipe. I don’t know what it is about this hot cocoa, but its close the best you can prepare at home with stuff already in your pantry.
(Makes two servings)
2 cups of whole milk
1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate
3 tablespoons of cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
3 turns of sea salt
Pour the milk into a small pot and let it come to a slight simmer. Add the other ingredients to the pot, and turn the heat to a lower fire. Whisk the hot cocoa until well combined and simmering slightly. Top with whipped cream, and/or marshmallows. Enjoy!
1 cup of Heavy Cream
2 tablespoons of powdered sugar
With a whisk attachment whip the ingredients until light and fluffy. This will take about four minutes total. Do not over-beat because it will become lumpy.
