Day 21

“make hot cocoa”

Avery and I made real hot cocoa from scratch tonight. It was a nice “project” that didn’t take too long and we got to enjoy it right away!

We enjoyed our hot cocoa in pretty mugs (she picked out) with no marshmallows. The girl doesn’t like marshmallows!! I think she liked it a lot, she asked when we were going to make it again!!


We used the recipe on the cocoa box;
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
dash salt
1/3 cup hot water
4 cups milk
3/4 tsp vanilla extract

* mix sugar,cocoa & salt in sauce pan, add water
* cook & stir over medium heat until mixture boils, boil & stir for 2 minutes
* add milk & heat, do not boil.
* remove from heat, add vanilla

Next time, I’ll add peppermint extract instead of vanilla.

  1. I made this recipe Christmas morning for me and the girls and it was great! All the other adults drink coffee and I really wanted something warm and yummy to sip on too so it worked out perfectly. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  2. Great Courtney!! I think I may need to buy the Cost Co size cocoa because Avery keeps asking to make more!
