from scratch hot cocoa
This has been my go-to recipe for the past 5 years. It is SO GOOD, and way cheaper than buying a box of store bought stuff! Plus, it doesn’t have any of those nasty ingredients pre-packaged cocoa has.

The Best Homemade Hot Cocoa

(makes 1 cup)

  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder (I like Dutch Cocoa)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 c. milk
  • dash homemade vanilla

Put the cocoa powder, sugar, and water in a small saucepan. Heat over low until melted, stirring constantly. Add milk and vanilla and stir until heated through to desired temp. Double or triple recipe as needed. Enjoy!
