My husband is the King of All Things Chocolate, and hot cocoa tops this King’s list of favorites.
Last Saturday as the snow was falling here in Seattle and we were settling in to watch a movie, I decided hot cocoa was in order.
Making a pot of cocoa is as simple as dumping cocoa powder (I used Hershey’s Dark Chocolate), milk, sugar or stevia, and vanilla into a pan, then whipping it over low heat until you can smell the chocolaty aroma fill the air.
Lucky for us, we’re adults so we can spike our cocoa with Peppermint Schnapps to take the chill off. But if a little nip of something isn’t your thing, you can always top yours with a billow of whipped topping.
Come to think of it, we did both!
- 3 cups almond milk, 30 calorie variety
- 3 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 packets stevia
- 4 tablespoons light whipped topping
- Combine almond milk, cocoa powder, vanilla and stevia in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
- Remove and serve topped with whipped topping.
