In these cold weather months, a nice, warm and cozy mug of hot cocoa is a must - especially where I live in Northern Minnesota! I have two little girls, ages 6 and 4, and after an exciting romp in our snow piles, sledding down the hill, and cuddling with our outside kitties, the girls bring their little rosy cheeks inside and ask for "some hot cocoa with marshmallows, Mommy, please!"
I used to buy a big tub of hot cocoa mix, but a few years ago realized that it is actually really easy to make. When you make your own hot cocoa mix, you know exactly what is going into it, and you can even add different flavor variations. This homemade recipe never disappoints and the ingredients are easy to find. This cocoa is creamy, chocolatey, and everything hot cocoa should be!
