Homemade Peppermint Hot Cocoa :)

4 years ago

So since the holiday`s are coming up, I`ve decided to figure out how to make hot cocoa. I found a recipe in a magazine, but I`ve tweaked it a little and played around with how to make it to suit my taste :)

-2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
-3+ tsp agave
-2 cups milk (i use skim milk)
-2 mini candy canes
-reddi-whip (i use fat free)

You can see I`m into the whole minimal fat thing haha. Which is part of the reason I decided to make it myself. You want to heat up the milk until it almost boils. I`ve found that the cocoa clumps up a lot if you just add it into the milk directly, so use a little of the warmed milk to make a syrupy-paste of the cocoa and then add it to the rest of the milk. Add the agave or sweetener you`re using and pour through a strainer into a mug with a mini candy cane at the bottom. Top with reddi-whip and stick another candy cane on the side of the cup though I usually end up just pushing it into the hot cocoa cuz it`s really just decorating sitting on the side of the cup :P

Give it a try and happy holidays!! :D
