DSC_1292It snowed last night.  The kids woke up, threw on their snow clothes, and anxiously ran outside to bask in the first snow of the season!  I knew that when they came in stomping their boots, with their little snow-kissed cheeks, they would “need” hot cocoa.  So, I dragged out my favorite recipe from last year, dusted it off and started cooking!  I hope your snow laden crew will enjoy this as much as mine does.

Best Hot Coca Ever

1/3c. cocoa powder

1/3c. half and half or heavy whipping cream

1/2c. sugar

pinch of salt

Mix it all together in a pan.



Bring it to a boil and simmer 1-2 minutes.


Add 4c. milk


Heat through – but do not boil.


Top with marshmallows and enjoy!
