Easy Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe

Easy Homemade Hot Chocolate Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ teaspoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • ½ Tablespoon Sugar
  • Teeny-tiny pinch of salt (very little salt. I like to add it for flavor.)
  • Milk (you will use however much it takes to almost fill up your coffee cup/mug.)

Let’s get started!

1. Pour milk into your mug of choice and heat for 1-2 minutes in the microwave on high. (Don’t fill up all the way because you will want to leave room to mix-in the “chocolate syrup” mixture.)

2. While milk is heating in the microwave mix together the remaining ingredients in another cup that has a very small amount of hot tap water in it. (The hot water will help combine all of the ingredients into a “chocolate syrup”.) Whisk all of the ingredients until you don’t see any cocoa powder lumps, adding a little bit more hot water at a time until you reach a smooth consistency.

3. Once milk is warmed to your liking, stir in the “chocolate syrup” mixture and you’ve got yourself the easiest and yummiest homemade hot chocolate!
