When the weather gets cooler, there’s one sweet treat that can help to warm you up – hot chocolate. Many people purchase the pre-made packs of hot chocolate from the store that only require you to add water. While these are both tasty and convenient, nothing quite beats making homemade hot chocolate. There’s just something so rewarding about enjoying a treat you made yourself. And besides, you can always tweak homemade recipes to suit your tastes and come up with some truly unique combinations.
Here’s how to make your own hot chocolate from scratch so that you can warm yourself up the next time there’s a cold front:
- Combine 3 ½ cups of sugar, 2 ¼ cups of cocoa, and one tablespoon of salt in a large bowl and whisk together.
- Add one cup of milk to a microwave-safe mug and microwave until hot. If you are making a larger batch, simply heat the milk up in a pot on the stove.
- Stir in two tablespoons of mix for each cup of milk.
- Top with whipped cream and any other ingredients of choice (such as cinnamon) and enjoy!
