Great Harvest Bread
Real Food. Real People.

Picture this: you and your family all cozied up next to the fireplace, watching a holiday movie and enjoying a glorious cup of hot chocolate and a scone. Doesn’t it sound like the perfect way to spend an afternoon? In case you’d like to make this a reality, Great Harvest in Spokane would like share a quick recipe for perfect cocoa.  

How to Make the Perfect Cup of Hot Cocoa

Get the Tasty Ingredients
4 cups of milk (whole, preferably)
¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup of sugar
¼ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
Add cinnamon, peppermint, nutmeg or chile powder to your liking (optional)
Condensed milk (optional)
Enough marshmallows

Heat Up the Milk

Take a large enough saucepan and pour the milk (and condensed milk, if desired) into it. Turn up the heat to a medium intensity and heat the milk until it starts to simmer.

Mix and Stir

Mix the cocoa, sugar, and the other ingredients you’re using in a bowl. Then, take a spoon and start adding some milk to this mixture. Stir it to incorporate the ingredients nicely until you’ve created a paste.

Simmer Once Again

Pour this paste into the milk, add the vanilla extract, and stir well again. Let this simmer for about 2 minutes in the saucepan. Be careful that it doesn’t boil!

Enjoy Your Winter Treat!

Now you just have to serve this delicious drink and add a few marshmallows on top so you can enjoy a luscious afternoon!
