Hot Cocoa

I made this hot cocoa for the first time last week because I wanted something sweet after dinner and it was so good that I’ve made it 3 times since! Even Joe has been requesting it! I promise it’s super easy to make and absolutely delicious… the perfect after dinner (or morning or afternoon) treat. If you get a chance to try it, be sure to let me know!
mugs: Pier One (last year)

1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
4 cups milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine cocoa, sugar, water, milk, and salt in pot over medium heat. Once thoroughly heated, remove from heat and add vanilla. Serve immediately… preferably with mini marshmallows!

Teacups and mugs are the perfect small gift, especially if you’re stuck for something small and don’t know what to buy. Almost everyone drinks coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and most people don’t like to spend money on something so small but love getting pretty ones as gifts- at least I do! You can add some tea, local honey, some fancy coffee, or even hot chocolate mix and marshmallows to make the gift a little more personal! Anthropologie has some really pretty ones!
