This weekend was the perfect excuse to make home made hot chocolate. It turned out yummy !! so I thought I would share the simple recipe ...
It leaves the house smelling good too !!!!
You Will Need
- 1/3 cup of Cocoa Powder
- 1 Pint of Milk
- Handful of Chocolate Chips
- 3-4 Candy Canes Crushed (1 for serving)
- Pinch of salt
Place cocoa in a medium none-stick saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk until cocoa has dissolved. Add chocolate chips and crushed peppermint; simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until chocolate and peppermint have melted. And the mixture has thickened.
Use a sieve and a measuring jug to pour the mixture into. Then use the jug to pour the hot chocolate into mugs. serve each with a Candy cane.
Me and the girls liked to dip our candy canes into the hot chocolate ... yummy :)
Now all you need to do is watch a Christmas Movie and your all set !!
