Classic Hot Cocoa

When the kids come in from playing in the snow, you know they're going to want a mug of Classic Hot Cocoa. Good homemade Christmas gifts are as simple as yummy hot cocoa.


  • 1 cup (250 mililiter) water
  • 1/4 cup (50 mililiter) cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mililiter) sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2 mililiter) cinnamon

  1. In a heavy bottomed saucepan bring the water, cocoa powder, sugar and cinnamon to a boil. Boil for two minutes.
  2. Add the milk to the cocoa mixture, stirring to combine. Bring the mixture almost to a boil stirring constantly.
  3. Reduce heat to low and let the mixture remain over the heat for a few minutes to thicken slightly (5 - 10 minutes depending on your willpower).
  4. Beat the mixture before serving.
  5. Garnish with marshmallows, whipping cream and/or ground chocolate.
