It seems that as soon as the temperature begins to fall my children start requesting hot cocoa. This recipe never disappoints.
For years, I kept my pantry stocked with a variety of store-bought hot cocoa mixes, until one, snowed bound day, I found myself without. It was then I discovered how easy it is to make hot cocoa on my own.
The ingredient list could not be more simple, many you probably already have in your pantry.
I sometimes pack hot cocoa in a thermos and send it to school with my boys. Their favorite way to enjoy a cup of hot cocoa is next to a bowl of homemade popcorn as an after school snack during the winter months.

**I’ve used both vanilla soymilk as well as almond milk to make this and both are delicious!**
