Great Morning Folks!
Its a snowy day in Northeastern America and my day just got un-busy. I woke up early this morning to find that the snow had stopped and the work had yet to be done. I woke up the kids and got them motivated to get out there shovel (Yaaayyyyy!!!!), with the promise of some warm homemade hot chocolate and grits (their request).
When they came back in I served them up a tall cup of hot chocolate with a smile… they said it tasted like Starbucks! :-O Really? Well, I will have to share this recipe with you all
1 part dutch processed cocoa
2 parts homemade powdered sugar
Milk of your choice
First you combine the cocoa and powdered sugar
Then you put 1 – 1 1/2 Tbsp of the cocoa mix per every cup of milk in a pot together
Simmer on a low setting, stirring well until all of the cocoa mix is dissolved
When ready to serve, top it off with your homemade whipped cream.
Warm, fuzzy and magically delicious.
Oh, on a side note. If you’ve run out of salt to protect passersby on your sidewalks, just sprinkle some of your least favorite grains that you’ve had sitting up in your cabinets forever on them. Millet is my personal fav for this because it is cheap. However, that old container of quinoa, amarath and steel cut oats worked just as well…no slippage.
