Hot Chocolate

Last week was National Hot Chocolate Day.  Didn’t know that holiday existed?  Me either, but I saw it on facebook and so, here is an adapted recipe for hot chocolate.  My mother-in-law gave me this recipe years ago and we have enjoyed it so much!  But it doesn’t fit our current diet regimen, so I have done some swapping out to make it a little less sugary. And it still tastes just as indulgent!

Hot Chocolate:

4 cups of milk (can be any milk of your choice…almond, coconut..etc)

1/3 cup hot water

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 to 1/3 cup agave nectar (depending on how sweet you like it)

Combine all ingredients into a saucepan, warm over a medium heat, making sure to stir frequently.  I know this takes longer than if you heated it on high, but you DO NOT want to scorch your milk.  It will ruin the whole batch.  Once it’s heated through, pour into mugs and enjoy!
