Hot Cocoa


 Close your eyes. The days have started to get cooler, the leaves are changing, and the nights are begging for you to start a fire.

A little music, some cozy blankets, and a mug of  Hot cocoa, are just what you need to set the stage for a romantic evening.

This is one of those recipes that you can make as complicated as you’d like. I typically make our hot chocolate . But, this can be made just as easily and just as well using a mix.

This isn’t about how elaborate we can make a recipe. It’s about you and your man spending some quality time together.

So, let’s make some hot chocolate!

Hot Cocoa
  • 2 C. milk
  • 1/4 C. cocoa, or to taste ( we always add more)
  • 1/4 – 1/3 C. powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

1. Heat your milk in a medium saucepan over low to medium heat. Once your milk is heated, whisk in your cocoa powder. I find that the cocoa dissolves more easily if the milk is warmed through.

2. Add powdered sugar, to taste. Whisk well

3. Whisk in salt and vanilla.

  1. I love “real” hot chocolate with milk! (None of that powdered stuff for me!) I also like to add a spoonful of peanut butter.
