A Winter Treat

As we brace for yet another storm (really, winter, this is getting old), I wanted to share one of my favorite homemade hot chocolate recipes. Enjoy!

What You Need:

2 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups cocoa
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions for Two Servings:

Mix ingredients together. Stir 1/4 cup mix and 2 tbsp hot water in a medium-size saucepan until blended. Gradually stir in 1 1/2 cups milk. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, until hot. Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.

I like to put the dry mix in fun plastic containers from the dollar store and tie the directions to it with ribbon. Take that, winter!
