How to Make the Perfect Cup of Hot Cocoa

Gather Your Ingredients

  • 4 cups of whole milk
  • ¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • Extras (optional; e.g. cinnamon, salt, peppermint, nutmeg or chili powder) to your liking
  • Condensed milk (optional)
  • Marshmallows (optional)

Follow the Instructions

  1. First of all, you'll need to heat up the milk. To do it, get a large saucepan and pour the milk and condensed milk into it. Put it on the stove at a medium heat until it starts simmering.
  2. Next up, you'll need to add the cocoa, sugar, and your extra ingredients into a bowl. Pour a bit of the hot milk little by little and stir everything nicely to create an even paste.
  3. Add the paste into the rest of the milk, pour in the vanilla extract, and mix them once more. Then, take the saucepan back to the stove and heat it for another 2 minutes (make sure it doesn't boil).
  4. Finally, you just need to pour this heavenly creation in your favorite cup and add some marshmallows on top. We recommend enjoying this treat with a yummy Pumpkin Log.
