This familiar favorite is even better when homemade…and with delicious additions! Nothing’s better than a warm beverage to share with
family and friends on cold and snowy days!
3 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
6 ounces milk chocolate, chopped
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Combine the milk, heavy cream, sugar, cocoa powder and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking occasionally, until the sugar and cocoa powder dissolve and the milk is steaming; do not boil.
- Whisk in half of the chopped chocolate until melted, then whisk in the remaining chocolate until smooth. Remove from the heat and whisk in the vanilla. Pour into mugs and top with marshmallows or whipped cream.
- Consider these twists on this classic – to each mug add your choice of the following: a peppermint stick or cinnamon stick; a tablespoon of caramel sauce or espresso; even a dash of hot sauce!
