Crazy Delicious Hot Chocolate Recipe
'Tis the season for a delicious hot chocolate recipe, right? Lately, we've been indulging our hot chocolate yayas almost every night. Today, however, at 1:30pm on a Sunday afternoon, there's already a batch brewing. Icy rain outside, hot chocolate inside. A perfect combo. Here's how to make our version. Please share yours in the comments -- enjoy!
Delicious Hot Chocolate Recipe
Ingredients: 1/2 Gallon milk (raw if you can get it) 1/2 C organic coconut oil 1/4 C organic cocoa 1/4 C raw honey 4 lightly beaten pastured eggs Instructions: Pour milk and eggs into a pan and briefly mix. This will help keep the eggs from cooking. Then add everything into the pot and turn heat up to just past medium. Do not mix yet, wait till coconut oil has started to melt and milk has lost its icy edge. Why? Because cocoa powder takes forever to mix with ice cold milk, but it does just fine in warm milk. When the milk has lost its icy edge and coconut oil is starting to melt, then blend with hand blender. I use a stick blender, my husband (the chef) uses a whisk. Once blended, continue heating to desired temp and serve. If you are really adventurous, sprinkle a little cinnamon or nutmeg on top. Best. Hot Chocolate. Ever. You'll see!
You could really go crazy and make home-made all-natural marshmallows to throw on top. (If you do, please report back. I haven't done this yet.)
And, if you have an option that makes your hot chocolate extra delicious, please share below. Thank you!
