Hot Chocolate

When cold weather hits, one of the things I miss the most is hot chocolate.  Six years ago, I found out that I was lactose intolerant, which meant good-bye to many things I liked — including hot chocolate packets.  Or hot chocolate from a restaurant.  I’d tried making hot chocolate from scratch before… with almost disastrous results.  (Soy milk really shouldn’t be used in hot beverages. Or oatmeal.)  However, since I found myself at home with some extra time, I thought I’d give it another try.  This time I used Almond Milk (original).  Hot chocolate is now back in my life and this snowy afternoon could not be cozier!

In a small sauce pan, heat (on medium heat):

4 cups of almond milk (original, not vanilla… there will be a little hint of almond in the cocoa)

1/2 cup of cocoa (maybe a little bit more… my measurement wasn’t exact)

1/4 cup of sugar

Stir with a whisk until the cocoa and sugar are dissolved. When heated through, pour in a mug and top with marshmallows.  Smile.
