My gosh, it is COLD! I have been freezing out of my ever-loving mind all week! The kids only had school twice last week due to the freezing temperatures. We have been busy chugging away at our basement remodel, but I have decided that this weekend I am going to stay under the covers, curl up with a few good books, and sip on some rich chocolatey hot cocoa. I remember my mom making huge batches of homemade hot cocoa when I was a kid, and it was so scrumptious! Nothing beats the flavor of a good pot of homemade hot cocoa! I was intrigued when I saw this Cocoa For Chocolate Lovers recipe on Golden Blossom Honey.
It called for an addition of cinnamon, which I have never had in my cocoa, and I was curious how well it was going to taste mixed into the drink. It turns out, I loved it! The cinnamon adds an overall warmth to the flavor, leaving me wondering why I haven't tried cinnamon in cocoa before.
Ingredients1 cup milk
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
dash of salt

My girls love to have a glass of cocoa to warm up after spending time playing out in the snow. I hope they have such fond memories of mama's homemade hot cocoa that I serve them, thanks to the delicious recipe I got from Golden Blossom Honey!
