My Favorite Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe

It's Friday the 13th! Spooky. But not really. How are you all doing today? Got any fun plans for the weekend? I feel like I should make homemade cookies or something, these last couple of weeks before Christmas just seem to be flying by.

Today I want to share an easy recipe for my favorite hot chocolate. It's easy, but it isn't particularly a super quick recipe. Quick enough for me though! I hope you'll try it out.

This recipe makes enough to fill 4 tall mugs or 6 small mugs.

-1/2 cup sugar
-1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
-1/3 cup water
-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
-4 cups milk
-Reddi Wip to your liking, or you could use marshmallow creme, whichever

In a medium pot, heat sugar, cocoa, water, cinnamon and nutmeg over low heat, whisking constantly, until mixture is smooth. Heat to boiling then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer 4 minutes, stirring constantly.

whisk in milk and heat over low heat. Once it's all heated through it's ready to be served. Make sure you leave enough room in the mug for your topping!

Top each serving with Reddi Wip or marshmallow creme. I sprinkled some cinnamon on top to make it look fancy! I'm sure it would be yummy if you topped it with crushed candy cane pieces as well. You can top it with whatever you'd like really. Caramel would probably be delicious too!

Isn't my new Elsa mug so precious? I love it! My Disney mug hoard is out of control. But I'll share that another time :)

If you try this recipe out let me know in the comments below! I love hearing from you all.

Thank you so much for reading my blog today. I love you!
