Winter Comfort in a Cup // Cocoa Recipe
This cocoa recipe is a favorite of mine. This one is spicy and will warm you up on a cold day. You could say it is the ultimate warm comfort in a cup for cold winter days.
I originally made this post for the HEMA blog. The HEMA blog relationship ended abruptly… the blog has vanished into thin air and I’ve received not a peep from them. So now I’m republishing my HEMA posts here (adding a winter date so that it will fit well into the archives).
Hot chocolate / cocoa is always a winter treat for us. A simple pleasure and the chili powder gives it a little kick. Cocoa with some sass! You could also make it with chocolate instead of cocoa. I use cocoa because it’s a staple item in our home.
- 4 1/2 cups milk
- 3 tablespoons cocoa mix
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- a pinch of chili powder
- a drop of vanilla extract
Heat the milk and slowly add the other ingredients, stirring slowly and constantly until it’s at the right temperature. Take care not to boil it!
Enjoy =) and let me know what you think of adding the chili powder to the cocoa!
