Makes 4 cups
½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons cocoa powder*
2 teaspoons sugar**
2 teaspoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups of milk***
To make the mix throw the chocolate chips, cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, cinnamon, and sugar if you’re using it into a blender or food processor and let that shit run until everything is a fine powder. You can store this away in the pantry or get right to making some hot chocolate.
Warm up the milk on the stove over a medium-low heat until small bubbles start to form at the edge of the pan. Whisk in the mix until there are no clumps and keep stirring it for about a 1½-2 minutes. You don’t ever want this shit start to simmer, just those little bubble around the edges. Serve right away with whipped cream, candy cane bits, marshmallows, whateverthefuck you’re in to.
Double or quadruple this recipe to keep this shit handy anytime you want to warm up with something sweet. Hot chocolate for one? We’ve got your lonely ass covered. Just use 2 tablespoons of the mix for every cup of milk you want to use.
* The kind you’d make brownies with.
** Optional. There’s already sugar in this from the chocolate chips but if you know you like it sweet, add this in.
*** We used almond but whateverthefuck you’ve got will work.
