Hot Cocoa

Any time I think about hot cocoa I think about being in New Mexico at a ranch we used to always go to with our youth group. We would sit around the fire in the most comfortable couches and drink the best hot cocoa ever. I think it was just package hot cocoa but for some reason it tasted so much better by the fire in the mountains.

We came across this recipe one night while we were watching tv. There wasn’t anything on and we had food network on. I don’t think either of us were actucaly paying attention to the tv but as soon as AB started making this he had our attention.

Hot Cocoa
adapted from Alton Brown

2 cups powdered sugar (if you like your’s really sweet you may add a little more)
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups powdered milk
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 pinch cayenne pepper, or more to taste (trust me it’s good)
Hot water

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well with a whisk. In a small pot, heat 4 to 6 cups of water.

Fill your mug half full with the mixture and pour in hot water. Stir to combine.

Seal the rest in an airtight container, keeps forever in the pantry. This also works great with warm milk.
