My Favorite Hot Cocoa Recipe

Today is a snow day for my daughter.  So naturally, the first thing we think of in the morning is making hot cocoa.  As much as I love the convenience of pre-made packets, they just don't have the rich chocolate taste I want.  So we busted out the Hershey's cocoa and got to making some delicious hot cocoa!

Hot Cocoa

1/2 cup sugar,  
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup powdered non-dairy coffee creamer
1/3 cup of water
4 cups of milk (we love the taste of vanilla almond milk with ours)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Pinch of salt
Whipped cream or marshmallows to top!

Mix together dry ingredients.  In a pan, wisk together dry ingredients with your wet ingredients.  Add your chocolate chips.  Simmer on medium/low until the chips are melted, and your cocoa is heated through (about 10 minutes).  Serve with whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate shavings, or whatever your heart desires!

Stay warm!
