Homemade and Impossibly Good REAL Hot Chocolate
Homemade Hot Chocolate
You can use nut milk, soy, goat or cow’s milk. Put about a cup of milk and 1 T. of Penzey’s Dutch chocolate powder (you can always add more) in a blender. This kind of cocoa powder doesn’t blend all that well with liquid without a little help.
I know it’s an extra step, but worth it in the end.
You can order the cocoa powder from Penzey’s or buy your favorite brand in the store. I find that Penzey’s products are much fresher.
Sweeten with honey or agave (low glycemic sweetener) to taste — try 1 T.
Do not microwave (anything, ever…) but put it on the stove over medium heat and stir constantly, just until heated through.
This is extraordinarily delicious. You’ll never go back to prepared mixes once you taste THIS Hot Chocolate. The secret ingredient is Penzey’s cocoa powder. Cheers!
