Homemade hot chocolate is easy to make and tastes much better than prepackaged mixes.
Hot cocoa is great for any time of the year to chase off the chill of a cold, rainy day or to indulge a chocolate craving.
Ingredients (makes 6 servings of mix):
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Combine sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, mini semisweet chocolate chips and salt in a bowl. Mix well.
2. In a medium saucepan, warm 8 ounces of milk for each cup of hot cocoa (do not boil). Remove from heat and divide evenly into mugs.
3. Add 2 Tablespoons of the mix into each cup of milk (3 Tablespoons if you like your cocoa extra chocolatey).
4. Top with large marshmallows or whipped cream sprinkled with cocoa powder.
