My Favorite Hot Chocolate Recipe

During the holidays, it’s usually inevitable that our family will gather around for board games in front of the fire. This is when I serve my favorite hot chocolate recipe provided to me by Randi Zeagler from Wake Up Coffee. It’s easy to make — just gather up all of the ingredients, bring to a boil, stir and top with marshmallows.

    • Whole milk
    • Unsalted butter
    • Hershey’s cocoa powder
    • Pure sugar cane
    • Cinnamon stick
    • Chocolate chips
    • Cayenne pepper

In a large pot, add

    • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
    • 3 cups of whole milk
    • 1/4 stick of unsalted butter
    • 1/4 cup of Hershey’s Cocoa Powder
    • 1/2 cup of pure cane sugar
    • 1 cinnamon stick
