Foodie Friday: Homemade Hot Chocolate

Posted on
Categories Foodie Fridays, Holidays, ParentingTags

I’ll admit that growing up, I’m not sure I knew that “homemade” hot chocolate existed.  I was a big fan of the powdered stuff in the packets.  We made it with milk, instead of water, for a special treat.

Last holiday, when my girls were close to four, I wanted to introduce them to the romantic notion of hot cocoa.  Instead of perpetuating my family’s “tradition”, though, I took to the internet, and I lucked into this great recipe.

It’s quick and easy, and oh-so-good.  And while it’s not exactly health food, I feel comfortable making it for my girls as a very special treat.

From, as written:


(I’ve found that half a recipe is just perfect for the three of us.)

For the grand introduction to the girls, I found the cutest espresso mugs that are just their size.  I love seeing their eyes alight, their little hands grasping their mugs, and a marshmallow mustache when they’re all done.
