Sweet, Savory and Very Chocolaty Hot Cocoa

The other night, I had the craving for something sweet before bed. Cookies and ice cream was what I had in mind, but no eggs and no chocolate chips. Next best thing, hot cocoa, perfect on those fall and winter chilly nights.


2 cups whole milk
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Pinch of salt

Add milk to a saucepan, heat on low (careful, if heat is too high the milk can burn). Add all ingredients, and whisk together. A shake of cinnamon is all it takes, I use just under ¼ teaspoon. Whisk until all lumps are dissolved, pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!

See that new runner on my table, stay tuned and I show you how I made it!
