Homemade Hot Chocolate!
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa! The kids love their little Christmas mugs and it makes hot chocolate time so much more fun. And of course, thanks Kates for the hot chocolate maker, years ago! It still gets used ALL the time! And for anyone else out there wanting to make easy, fabulous hot chocolate at home, try this........
4 cups milk (we use whole)
2 T cocoa powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 t vanilla
Whisk together and heat. Top with whipped cream and indulge! We vary this, sometimes adding a bit of cream (okay, more than a bit), melted chocolate chips, cinnamon, postum, chai herbal tea.....the options are endless!
Oh, and it's ten times better if you stir with a candy cane!
