I’ve found myself growing tired of your basic, everyday milk chocolate hot cocoa with gummy marshmallows and a condensed, syrupy bottom. So I was inspired to kick it up a notch and spice things up (pun extremely intended).

This recipe fills a half-pint jar and serves two people or one ambitious person with big dreams and motivation.

Step 1: Blend Everything in a Food Processor

You'll need:
  • 3 1/2 oz semi sweet chocolate
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch of ginger1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Process the chocolate in a food processor until it’s grainy and sand-like. Add sugar and cocoa powder and blend until powdery (it won’t be super smooth).

Add cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg and blend until combined.

Step 2: Make the Cocoa

Heat 2 cups of half & half or milk in a small saucepan until the edges begin to bubble, stir in 10 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix and stir until smooth, pour into two mugs.

Saving this. It sounds delicious and simple. Thanks
