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!
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!
