Hot Cocoa - A warm soothing beverage


Share with friends and family

 There is nothing like snuggling under a comforter watching your favorite show with a warm cup of cocoa to sip on a chill winter night or monsoon evening. 

I have loved sipping on cocoa since childhood as I was never fond of any malt based health drinks so mom would allow me to have cocoa once in a while as an exception to milk . My love and liking for this beverage is eternal. Though I don't drink cocoa much these days ,I love to have a mug full of cocoa and some ME time on days when I am exhausted to rejuvenate myself.

Making hot cocoa is very easy and doesn't need any fancy ingredients. All you need is some good quality cocoa powder, sugar and hot milk .

If you like you can add a little cinnamon powder for the extra punch or add up some gooey marshmallows or chocolate shavings for added taste and flavor .

I prefer to have plain cocoa without much toppings except drizzling for some chocolate sauce /syrup once in a way .

Cooking Time - 3 mins

Ingredients 
1.5 tsp cocoa powder
2 tsp sugar 
1/4 cup hot water

Method 


  • Take cocoa powder and sugar in a mug or serving cup .
  • Pour hot water and whisk it well to form a lump free cocoa decoction. 
  • Pour hot milk to this cocoa decoction and stir well..adjust sugar if you need more sweetness.  
  • I like my cocoa to be sweet so I add a little extra sugar ,you may reduce it if you relish a slightly bitter after taste .
