Recipe for Hot Chocolate
¾ C Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder (I really like Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder, which is a blend of Dutch processed and natural. I like this very much. Alternatively, natural is fine.)
½ tsp Fine Sea Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
½ C Hot Water
1 1/3 Cup Sugar
12 Cups Milk
2 tsp Vanilla
- Mix together the Cocoa Powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large Dutch oven-sized pot.
Stir in the water and heat on Medium until smooth and well incorporated. Add the sugar and continue stirring until smooth. It doesn’t have to boil, but the sugar should be well on its way to dissolving, and the mixture should remind you of chocolate syrup from a bottle (but soooo much better—and, fear not, it won’t taste salty when it’s all done!)
- Add the milk and stir to combine. Reduce heat to Medium low and cook, stirring occasionally until very hot, but don’t boil.
- Remove from heat and stir in Vanilla. Garnish with—please, like you really don’t know what to put in hot chocolate?
May your tummy be warm and full enough to be happy, but not warm and full enough to be sick!
