a blog about my busy little life as a mom

hot cocoa

Last night Macy and I made some hot chocolate because she had a stuffy nose and I had a sore throat.  Plus, I want to try to do more things with just her since most of our daytime activities have to include “baby Kiwi.”  Macy had fun helping AND eating marshmallows.

Hot Chocolate

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 4 cups milk
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla

Mix sugar, cocoa, salt, and water.  Stir over medium heat until mixture boils.  Stir and boil for two minutes.
