Hot Cocoa

This weekend the cold, snowy weather finally hit us. It wasn’t much snow, and it didn’t last, but the cold certainly did and it was enough to get us wanting hot cocoa.

Here’s how we do it:

-put about a cup of milk in a pot on the heat with a handful of chocolate chips and a small splash of vanilla
-stir like crazy until the chocolate melts
-add a couple of tablespoons of cocoa (the amount will depend on how many cups you want to make, and how rich your cocoa is), and about the same amount of sugar
-stir until everything dissolves
-add milk until you have the desired amount of cocoa

Our’s is usually super rich and chocolatey (it’s so dark is actually looks like coffee in the last picture), but you can control this by how much milk you put in!
