PERFECTLY CHOCOLATE HOT COCOA RECIPE FOR COLD JANUARY DAYS

January 11, 2017

This perfectly creamy, rich hot cocoa is best paired with a blanket and a book by the fire. It's old fashioned, it's comforting, it makes the kitchen smell wonderful and it's good for the soul and I just love making it for my husband and myself before we go to bed on cold winter nights. 

 

Ingredients​:

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Ghirardelli as it is the best quality) 

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1/3 cup boiling water

  • 3 1/2 cups milk

  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream

  • Oreo and/or  crushed tea biscuits for decoration (or anything else you prefer or might think of) 

Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while you stir. Simmer and stir for about 2 minutes. Watch that it doesn't scorch. Stir in 3 1/2 cups of milk and heat until very hot, but do not boil! Remove from heat and add vanilla. Divide between 4 mugs. Add the cream to the mugs of cocoa to cool it to drinking temperature. And most importantly enjoy!
