It is currently 30 degrees outside here in south Texas, and hot chocolate is the PERFECT way to warm up after being outside!  Here is my favorite hot chocolate recipe.  Enjoy 🙂

What you’ll need:

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 cups whole milk (use any milk you like- even a milk substitute, but the whole milk makes a creamier consistency)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • whipped cream or marshmallows
  • Sprinkles

Boil cocoa powder, sugar, and water, and simmer for 2 minutes.



Add milk and vanilla.


Give it a good stir and heat on low.

Top with marshmallows or whipped cream.  ( I prefer whipped cream!)

Don’t forget the sprinkles!

And one for my girls. 🙂


You can make this small batch for your family, double or even triple the recipe and make it in the crock pot!  This is a real crowd pleaser and is delicious!

Thanks for reading! xx
