I was experimenting with stove-top cocoa (seeking an alternative to the packet mix and all those nasty additives).

The end result is creamy, and thick. I love the body this cocoa has, and it's a satisfying snack that soothes a chocolate craving.

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 1 qt
    organic skim milk
  • 6 Tbsp
    granulated sugar
  • 4 Tbsp
    hershey's special dark cocoa powder

How to Make Rich Dark Hot Cocoa

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium saucepan, add the cold milk, coconut oil and whisk in the cornstarch and mix well. Set on medium-high heat.

    Whisking constantly, add cocoa powder, sugar and sea salt.

    Continue whisking - bring the mixture up to a moderate bubble, and turn off heat, but leave pot on the burner and continue cooking and stirring.

    The cocoa will have thickened. Add the vanilla and mix well. Taste the mixture & adjust sugar if needed.

    To serve, I pour the mixture into a one-quart Pyrex measuring cup to facilitate pouring.

    Top with marshmallows or whipped cream, if desired.
