Now that the Christmas season is upon us and the cool weather is settling in, it is the perfect time for cocoa! Honestly, I could drink it morning, noon and night I love it that much.
While I have my "go to" recipe I am always open to trying something new. This classic hot cocoa recipe from Mast Brothers Chocolate: A Family Cookbook is smooth, chocolatey and delicious!
Classic Hot Cocoa
4 Cups whole milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 ounces dark chocolate
In a medium saucepan combine milk, cocoa powder, sugar and vanilla, bring to a boil, string frequently.
Shave chocolate over each mug or add a toasted marshmallow.
