I do! Especially at night when the lights are down and the house is quiet. That's the best time for Hot Cocoa and a good book.
Here is a recipe I came up with for making homemade hot cocoa instead of that instant stuff. This has a deep, rich flavor that all the chocoholics out there will love!
Here's what you need:
3-1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. espresso powder
In a bowl mix the sugar, cocoa powder and espresso powder until well mixed.
To make the hot cocoa place 1-1/2 cups milk in a pan and add 3-4 Tbs. of the hot cocoa mix.
The color will change from dark brown to a light cocoa color and just before boiling it will be ready.
Pour into a mug and top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of the mix or cinnamon or even chocolate shavings. Mmm mmm!
Store leftovers in an airtight container.
Serves approximately 4 cups of mix
