Hot Chocolate

What better than Hot Chocolate to warm up this season? Probably a funky hot chocolate!
For this month's Secret Recipe Club I was assigned Anne Jisca's Healthy Pursuit blog. I chose Anne's hot chocolate recipe since it seemed the ideal comfort drink for the weather and fun for the kids. My son enjoyed making funky designs with fresh cream over the hot chocolate. 

(Funky) Hot Chocolate-
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
4 1/2 cups milk


  • Mix cocoa and sugar in saucepan. Stir in water.
  • Heat to boiling, reduce heat.
  • Simmer uncovered for 4 minutes stirring constantly. Stir in milk.
  • Heat just until hot.
  • Beat with hand blender till foamy.
  • Serve with fresh cream.

  1. Oh yum! Sometimes it's the simple pleasures in life ... with cream on top!

  2. I've never made my own hot chocolate from scratch. This sounds great! Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Nothing like hot chocolate after coming in from playing on a cold winter day! It hasn't snowed here yet but we love hot chocolate almost anytime of the year!

  4. What could be better than a steaming cup of Hot chocolate to sooth the body & soul during winter.

  5. This is something that I would like to have before I go to bed.......
