Hot Chocolate

What could be better on a dreary, cold day than a nice, warm fire? How about homemade hot chocolate?! This delicious drink is tons better when you put in the effort and make it yourself rather than using the powder mix. Not only is it better, but it is tastier and creamier with a rich, chocolate taste that will ignite your taste buds!

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Serves 2


3 cups whole milk or heavy cream

2 tablespoons of sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 tablespoon 100% pure cacao powder

1/3 cup of bittersweet chocolate pieces or chips


  • In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, warm the milk
  • Add the cacao powder, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Stir and bring to a boil. Taste the mixture and feel free to add more sugar and vanilla if you want a sweeter taste
  • As it boils, add the chocolate pieces and lower to a simmer. Stir as the chocolate melts to bring to a creamy consistency
  • Transfer to mug and top with marshmallows, or whipped cream, or both
  • Enjoy
