Homemade Hot Chocolate- It is SO Easy!

There is a simple fact of life- nothing from a box compares with the real thing!

That also applies to hot chocolate!

I have my own hot chocolate recipe I developed and we  just love it.

As I sit here drinking a nice cup of the delicious concoction the wind is howling from the North bringing rain that will turn to ice and then snow.  To be honest, I could live without this sort of weather and given that I live in East Texas, many winters I don’t have to deal with much of it.  However, this is shaping up to be a cold winter for us.  So, if it is going to be cold it might as well be white!  I am looking forward to waking up to a white world.

I thought you might like a great cup of hot chocolate, so here is the recipe!

Hot Chocolate

2 Cups whole milk

3 cups heavy cream

3 tablespoons of Cocoa

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons of real vanilla

Mix together and heat through in a heavy bottomed sauce pan.  Top with marshmallows if you desire (which we do).

The sugar could be substituted with organic raw sugar, honey, or agave nectar if you are looking for an unprocessed version.

Is that simple or what?!  What is a favorite snow day treat in your house?
