How To Make Creamy Hot Chocolate
Winter season wouldn’t be complete without a steaming mug of hot chocolate! Recreate this simple, but perfectly tasteful cup of hot choco at home.
In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup until the cocoa powder is mostly incorporated.
Whisk in the milk.
Warm the mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently for 4 to 7 minutes until it comes to a gentle simmer.
Remove the hot chocolate from the heat, then stir in the chopped chocolate and vanilla extract until well blended.
Taste and add more maple syrup, if desired.
Pour the hot chocolate into two mugs, then top with marshmallows, whipped cream, and shaved chocolate.
Serve warm, and enjoy!
