Some days, you need a treat. The weather has been cold for too long, the sun is shining for the first time in days and you know it won’t last so you try to soak in every ray, and you need something warm to wrap your hands around while you sit in an awkward spot on your dining room floor because it gets the best sun. This is life.
Also great? This hot chocolate. It’s full of good ingredients, takes just a few minutes on the stove to be complete, and is best served in one of your favorite mugs, hopefully with a really good memory attached to it. I chose the mug we bought on our honeymoon in Scotland. It gives me all the good feels.
Mix and match the ingredients of the drink. Switch out for whatever milk you like. Taste and add more sweetening if you like it super sweet. It should make you happy.
- Roughly 1.5 c. milk of choice (I filled my mug with homemade coconut milk and poured it into the pan)
- 2 tsp. raw cacao powder
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup, or to taste
- Small pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. maca (optional)
Whisk together the ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat, until lightly simmering. Pour into a pretty mug. Done.
