Inside Outside Hot Chocolate

A never-fail hot drink for the whole family is homemade hot chocolate. It takes about five more minutes than instant, and it’s so worth it. 

Inside Outside Hot Chocolate

4 cups whole or 2% milk
¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup sugar
½ cup bittersweet or semi-sweet chips or chopped bar
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Heat milk, cocoa, and sugar on medium-low, whisking frequently until mixture is warm. Add chips and whisk constantly until evenly distributed. Add vanilla and serve.

For a boozy adult treat, add 2 parts Frangelico, 1 part Irish cream, and two parts bourbon. Hey, if Momma’s happy, the whole family’s happy.
