Haven’t Had Enough Cocoa? Try This.

Best Simple Hot Cocoa

It’s the second day of the new month and I love this time of year. I love celebrating advent and trying to fit something fun and seasonal into each day. Yesterday was baking Monster Cookies and listening to Christmas music. Today I wanted to share my simple hot cocoa recipe. I don’t know about where you live but in my town it’s 23 degrees! Hopefully this recipe will warm you up and help get you into the holiday spirit.


2 tbls EACH of

* Cocoa powder

* Sugar

1 cup of milk, separated


Mini marshmallows

Reddi Wip

Chocolate Chips

Chocolate Jimmies

Mix cocoa, sugar and 2 tblsp milk over medium heat  and whisk until cocoa is dissolved. Add the rest of the milk, more if you prefer a little less cocoa-y cocoa. Continue to stir over heat until cocoa is hot. Do not boil!

Pour cocoa over a handful of chocolate chips in your favorite mug. Stir to melt. Add a few mini marshmallows and Reddi Wip. Top with chocolate jimmies. Enjoy!
