Doesn’t that just sound perfect?
Baseball practice was not only rained out this afternoon, it was hailed out. So my son and I arrived home soaked to the bone and very cold. In my house, there’s only one antidote for this condition: home made hot chocolate.
Of course you can boil some water and add some powder and mix, but making your own takes hot chocolate to a whole new level. The extra five minutes of work are well worth the very happy faces of the kids who get to experience hot chocolate as it really should be – thick, chocolatey and ultra-yummy.
HOME MADE HOT CHOCOLATE
100 g (4 oz) semi-sweet or dark chocolate chopped up
¼ cup sugar
5 cups of milk
10 marshmallows or many mini-marshmallows (optional but very yummy)
How to do it
1. In a medium-sized saucepan, add the chocolate, sugar and ¾ cup of milk. While stirring, bring to the boil.
2. Add the rest of the milk and heat until hot but not boiling.
3. Ladle into mugs and add 2 marshmallows to each mug.
Makes about 5 cups of hot chocolate. Prepare yourself to make seconds!
