Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate Recipe

Our hot cocoa is rich and chocolaty without the overly sweet taste of some packaged mixes. We give it a luxurious froth with a whisk or blender—or use a cappuccino frother if you have one.

IngredientsHot Chocolate Recipe

2 tablespoons sugar

4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1 cup 1% milk, divided

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of ground cinnamon


5 m | Ready In 5 m

Mix sugar, cocoa and 2 tablespoons cold milk in a mug until smooth. Heat the remaining milk in a small saucepan on the stovetop or in a 2-cup glass measure in the microwave until steaming hot but not boiling. Stir in the cocoa mixture and vanilla. 

To froth the hot chocolate, whirl a whisk in it by rubbing your hands back and forth. (Alternatively, pour the hot chocolate into a blender, cover with the lid and a kitchen towel and blend until frothy.) Pour it back into the mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.
