Hot Chocolate - Feingold Stage 1

We don't drink hot chocolate too often but there are two times a year that we definitely do: The first snowfall of the year, and around Christmas time when we watch Polar Express. Polar Express is now my 7 year old's favorite movie. Not sure if it's because of the movie, or the hot chocolate. :)  

This is just the recipe off of the Hershey’s Cocoa box.  This makes 5-6 servings.

½ cup sugar (I use organic from Costco or use C&H)

¼ cup Hershey’s Cocoa (or organic cocoa)

Dash salt

1/3 cup hot water

4 cups of milk (we use Pacific rice milk or you can use water)

1 tsp vanilla extract (watch for corn syrup and gluten if GF)

Mix sugar, cocoa, and salt in saucepan.  Stir in water.  Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils.  Boil and stir 2 minutes.  Stir in milk and heat.  Do not boil the milk.  Remove from heat and add vanilla. 

We sometimes use with homemade marshmallows or with Elyon (corn syrup) or Dandie's (soy) marshmallows from Whole Foods or the health food store. The homemade marshmallows melt quickly but my kids don’t mind. We use organic cocoa now. It tastes much better than the Hershey's.

  1. This is a perfectly perfect recipe for hot chocolate. I will certainly try your marshmallow recipe.
