How to make your own hot chocolate
Homemade hot chocolate is easier than you think, and it tastes extra nice on a cold winter’s day. Make sure to store it in a good thermos so it keeps warm, and drink it together with a cinnamon bun and some friends. Here’s how to make it:
Ingredients for one cup:
- 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
- 1,5 tablespoons of white granulated sugar
- 0,5 deciliter of heavy cream
- 2-3 deciliters of warm milk (depending on how strong you want your chocolate)
Mix the cocoa powder, sugar and cream into a thick cocoa batter. Make sure to mix it thoroughly until smooth. Heat up the milk, but don’t let it boil. Add the milk to the cocoa batter and blend until the batter has totally dissolved. And if you want to make more for a whole thermos, simply double the recipe for more people to enjoy.
It’s best served with a click of whipped cream on top, but is just as lovely as it is!
