When the temperature drops there's nothing like a hot cup of cocoa or hot chocolate!


It's comforting, it makes the kitchen smell wonderful and it's good for the soul (tastes pretty good too!!). Here is one of our favorite recipes. Think your recipe is the best? Post it in your reply!


Serves 4


3 cups (750ml) milk, divided

1 cup (250) 35% whipping cream, divided

1/4 cup (50ml) granulated sugar

1/4 cup (50ml) unsweetened cocoa powder

pinch salt 

1 teaspoon (5ml) vanilla


In a saucepan, heat 2 1/2 cups (625ml) milk and 3/4 cup (175ml) of the whipping cream over medium heat, stirring often, until steaming. Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together sugar, cocoa and salt. Whisk in remaining 1/2 cup (125ml) cold milk and vanilla to make a smooth paste. Reduce heat to medium-low and gradually whisk cocoa mixture into hot milk mixture until blended.  Heat for about two minutes or until steaming hot. In small chilled bowl, using electric mixer or whisk, whip remaining whipping cream until thick. Ladle hot chocolate into four warmed mugs. Dollop whipped cream evenly into each mug;stir to swirl lightly. Serve immediately and enjoy!
