My cocoa recipe is pretty basic. 

Heat up some warm milk (or water if you prefer), Add in a packet or a few spoonfuls of either Swiss Miss cocoa or Ghiradelli peppermint hot cocoa. I personally prefer whip creme over marshmallows. As a topping, I get one of the dark chocolate peppermint oranges and break off a wedge and chop it up; some will fall into the cocoa and melt while other bits and crumbles are just an added minty sweetness with each sip.

I'm incredibly basic with my hot chocolate recipe, it's an old family tradition to make it on birthdays and christmas mornings <3

I heat normal milk on the stove and while it warms up I blend a mixture of sugar and cocoa powder with drops of cream in the mug I am using. When it's been mixed into a ball of goo I pour the hot milk into the cup and stir it carefully so everything gets blended properly. After that it is technically finished, but we always whip cream and place it on the top of the mug. Sometimes if I want to be really fancy I get some chocolate chips and sprinkle them on top of the cream.

Although, most commonly I just warm up milk in the microwave and put in a few spoons of instant hot chocolate powder called O'boy here in Sweden XD

Is there a reason for the ball of goo method? Do you find that it mixes more uniformly that way? I'M SO CURIOUS * A * THANK YOU~ <3 
delightfuliza's avatar
That's a very good question XD I believe the ball of goo method mixes everything more evenly, but it should be noted that if you use too much cream it just becomes goo which works too. I just think the ball of goo thing tastes better honestly.

Hmmm....

I use this thing called “abuelita chicolate”, where you put in part of a chicolate bar into hot milk and add toppings of your choice.

Put a dark chocolate in the mug, use a hot milk( I usually use rice milk) then put in a teaapoon of brown suggar. Then use a nutmeg( Muscat nut) powder or I use a whole nut and fine grater  and sprinkle it on the top of the hot chocolate! <3

My recipe is a bit unique in what I add, but it does taste good!!

1 cup milk, 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tbsp honey, and 1 tbsp hot cocoa!

Some crushed peppermint cane and whipped cream for toppings.

You get the milk to boil, and add in the cinnamon and honey. Mix for about 10 seconds, and then add hot cocoa mix, stirring well. Once it sits for a minute or two, add the whipped cream and sprinkle the peppermint and you've got a nice cinnahoney hot cocoa!

The easiest way to make hot chocolate for me is to heat up some milk and simply add nutella :'D Than some whiped cream for topping. Easy and Delicious! <3
