BM# 95: Week 2, Day 2
Theme : Winter warmers
When you say winter, the first thing that comes to mind is Christmas. And the second thing is hot chocolate. A cup of hot chocolate goes a long way into uplifting your mood on a cold day. I don’t like the readymade hot cocoa packets that you just have to mix with hot water and drink. I prefer the old fashioned from scratch method using cocoa powder.
It is a simple basic method of mixing one tablespoon of cocoa powder and sugar as needed to a cup of hot milk. I also like using a candy cane as a stirrer to infuse peppermint flavor into the drink. This morning I tried a peanut butter version where you add a tablespoon of peanut butter to the basic hot chocolate recipe. I am big fan of peanut butter, so for me it was delicious.
But for my son, I wasn’t sure whether he would like it. So I made this much simpler version of hot chocolate. It uses only chocolate chips and hot milk. I added a tiny pinch of instant coffee powder to boost that chocolate flavor a bit more. And of course some marshmallows for topping!
Read on for the recipe. This post goes to Kids Delight event, hosted this month by PJ under the theme Winter warmers.

I don’t know why but I never make hot chocolate and even the kids never ask for it. But with the cold weather here I guess I could give it a try maybe just to impress my girls.Btw love the idea of using candy cane stirrers.
Wow! What a fantastic idea of using the candy cane as a stirrer. My little one will definitely thank you for this idea.
