Healthy Homemade Hot Cocoa
I used to drink Swiss Miss hot cocoa all. the. time. I am so ashamed. Who knows how much white sugar and dangerous hydrogenated oil I drank from that. I remember I used to buy the hot cocoa envelopes in the summer, just so I could snack on those dehydrated mini marshmallows. Are you laughing at me? Because I’m kind of laughing at myself right now.
So if you are like me, and love hot chocolate (and anything else chocolate, for that matter), you will love this easy homemade hot cocoa! I really hope that we can all stop buying those unhealthy hot cocoa mixes from the grocery store. This Healthy Homemade Hot Cocoa is just as sweet and creamy as Swiss Miss, requires only 3 ingredients, and takes the same amount of time to make as the stuff in the envelope. It is absolutely delicious on its own, but even more authentic with some homemade marshmallows

I am sorry for not sharing this recipe sooner… I know a lot of you froze your butts off over the last few months. And maybe some of you are still freezing. I know I am with New York’s 40 degree weather! Oh, how I miss Arizona… but better late than never I suppose. The main point is that there is finally a healthy hot cocoa recipe to warm your frozen solid hands 😉
