Have you ever had a hankering for a cup of hot cocoa but didn’t have any hot cocoa mix? If you have basic baking supplies in your pantry, you can make a hot cup from scratch using baking cocoa, sugar, and the milk of your choice. It’s almost as easy as using a mix. Here’s how:
Hot Cocoa for One
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 or 2 tablespoons cane sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
- Pinch sea salt
- 1 cup whole milk or plain, unsweetened plant milk
Whisk together the cocoa, sugar, salt, and milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until cocoa and sugar are dissolved. Continue whisking occasionally just until it starts to boil. Remove from heat, pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!
