This past week we were out of hot cocoa mix and Chocolate Abuelita so I looked up how to make hot cocoa out of baker’s chocolate powder. Believe it or not I’d never done this before.
Turns out it’s quicker than melting Chocolate Abuelita and tastes better. It’s one of those rare “from scratch” recipes that’s actually quicker. Here’s the recipe:
- Mix about 1/3 cup water, 1/4 cup cocoa, and 1/4 cup powdered sugar in a pot
- Heat the mixture and stir until blended
- Add 3-4 cups milk and blend
- Heat until desired drinking temperature. Take care not to boil it
- Pour into mugs
That’s it! Enjoy your hot chocolate, everyone.
