We are finally getting some cooler temperatures around here and today even a drizzle of rain. I am usually a hot tea girl in the evening; but lately after the kids are tucked in, Adam pours a glass of wine and I just want some homeade hot chocolate!
My sister had her sweet baby boy last week so I've been eating that little guy up! I think about her and remember those early nights when you are feeding at all hours and you really don't know your days from nights/ your sleeptime from awake time.
My aunt Debbie told me that she would fix herself a big mug of piping hot chocolate when she got up for those night time feedings. It made her look forward to it a little more :)
Here's the recipe I've been using:
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon Penzey's Cocoa
I just heat up the milk in the microwave, add the rest, and stir. You can use any kind of milk and it would be better done on the stovetop but I still don't have one!!
