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.

About Katiehttps://thoughtsong.wordpress.comI like to dabble in writing out thoughts on scripture and life events.  Music, to me, is a dear friend, the structure that organizes my thoughts, and the feelings of my heart. Most of my time, however, is spent Teaching and Homemaking (especially trying to create hygge and live as a gluten-free baker). Take all these things away and I still have my true identity: I'm a sinner saved by grace and who dearly loves the Savior who first loved her. And that's really all that matters.
