Did you survive Snowmageddon 2019?
WE enjoyed the unexpected day off work! I hope you got a chance to put your feet up and spend some time with family and friends.
Today is National Hot Chocolate Day! I thought I’d share a quick and easy recipe with you to share with your family/friends. For some reason, I always associate Hot Chocolate with the Super Bowl, but that is another story for another day.
Super Bowl Hot Chocolate
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/3 cup boiling water
- 3 1/2 cups milk
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
Combine the cocoa, sugar and pinch of salt in a saucepan. Blend in the boiling water. Bring this mixture to an easy boil while stirring. Simmer while gently whisking for 2 minutes. Don’t scorch it! Gently stir in the milk and heat it until very hot but not boiling. Remove from the stove, stir in the vanilla. Serves 4. Add the half & half to cool. Garnish as you choose with powdered pecans, bourbon, marshmallows, whipped cream or cinnamon sticks.
Thanks and Take Care,
