Devoured by my jealousy over Margo’s brand-spankin’-new blog, I’ve decided to give her hot chocolate a run for her money with my patented hot cocoa:

Hot cocoa!

It’s easier than melting chocolate and warms you up just as well, with the added bonus of being much lower in fat. Still, I wouldn’t call this a diet drink by any means.

All you need is this (amounts per serving, multiply as appropriate for any company you may be having):

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp good quality cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • bit of hot water

Start warming the milk over a brisk flame. Combine the cocoa and sugar in a mug, pour in enough boiling water to dissolve the mixture, then pour it into the milk. Keep stirring until it becomes hot, but without letting it boil. Pour into mugs. Optionally, you can toss in a few marshmallows to really take the kids into orbit. There, you’re done. Now it’s their turn:

Mmmm, good.

Happy wintering.

About Simon

Born in 1968, I was tragically not recognized as a genius until three years later, when I built and flew my first home-made aircraft. Since then, my life has been a string of major successes interspersed with what can only be called triumphs on a galactic scale. I am currently waiting to achieve my next one - should be ready in another 15 minutes or so. Bear with me...
