You’ve probably had a hot chocolate recently. And it probably came from an envelope. Today, we’re going to push that envelope. We’re going to push it far, far away.
The gold standard hot chocolate recipe is creamy, sweet, and a little rich. It’s almost perfect as is, but it can get better. Much better. Here are eight ways how.
For lactose-intolerant, stir up your own hot cocoa mix with:
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder mixed with
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice optional
You can reduce the sugar a bit to taste. 2 1/2 tablespoons of this stirred into a cup of hot lactose free milk or soy milk or almond milk or whatever makes a wonderful, winter treat!
