Do you like hot chocolate? I do.
And so do my kids.
Have you ever happened to look at the label on a box of hot chocolate?
Warning: what you are about to see may be very disturbing.
Pardon my French, but what is all that crap?
My rule regarding food is the simpler the better.
If I can't pronounce it or find it in my kitchen, we don't eat it.
I know. I know. Hot chocolate is a must in winter. Don't worry - I have a solution!
I have the most delicious REAL FOOD hot chocolate recipe EVER.
Stovetop Hot Chocolate
By Shaye Elliot
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup cocoa powder
4 cups organic, raw, grass-fed, whole milk
1 tsp vanilla
teeny pinch of salt
1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan.
2. Whisk ingredients together while warming over medium heat. **please be sure not to scald the milk, simply heat until warm**
What's that?? You're running on E? Me too.
On days I need an extra boost of energy I add 1/4 cup of strong coffee to the bottom of my hot chocolate. **please be sure not to accidentally give that mug to your child** :)
This hot chocolate is the perfect way to warm your kiddos up after an afternoon of sledding. It also makes wrapping Christmas presents a teensy bit more enjoyable.
