About this recipe

Hot cocoa is made purely from cocoa powder and brings back a lot of childhood memories for me. There’s nothing more satisfying than drinking a warm cup of homemade hot cocoa. It’s comforting and delicious at the same time.

A creamy smooth hot cocoa is a winter treat and is generally much denser and richer than drinking chocolate. All it takes to make a cup of hot cocoa is some hot water or milk and cocoa powder.

Notes from Rouba

  • If you like your chocolate drink frothy, put it into a blender.
  • How much sugar you add is up to you.
  • Treat it like a dessert by topping it with whipped cream, marshmallows and dusting it with cocoa powder.

Method

Step 1.

Whisk together the cocoa, sugar and 1/4 cup of milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until no lumps remain and sugar begins to dissolve.

Step 2.

Add remaining milk. Split and scrape the vanilla bean pod into the milk. Add the scraped-out pods to infuse the cocoa with vanilla flavour. Continue to stir on medium to low heat for approximately 3 minutes. My boys prefer a mug!
