Homemade Hot Chocolate


During the holidays it’s easy to slip into fixing pre-made goodies. When it comes to hot chocolate, there’s no reason to! Your homemade version will be 10x better than the store bought stuff. Make up a jar of the powder mix and add in the finishing touches whenever you’re ready to warm up like I was today! Here in Colorado Springs it’s 2° with about 4 inches of snow on our patio. After getting our fabulous Christmas tree up last night, it just seems like time to break out the hot chocolate and really get into the holiday spirit with some Christmas tunes while I finish putting up the rest of the decorations. Also, my mug is a shameless shout out to my alma mater, Berry College!


  • 2-3 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder (depending on how rich you want it)
  • 1 tbs granulated sugar
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1 truffle
  • mug 3/4 full with hot water
  • 2 tbs of heavy cream
  1. Combine the cocoa, sugar, salt and truffle in mug.
  2. Fill mug 3/4 full with steaming hot water.
  3. Finish with 2 tbs of heavy cream.
  4. Enjoy!
