Bitsy's Hot Cocoa Recipe

Easy, Yummy Hot Cocoa!

We’re freezing here in CT this weekend, so we’ve been whipping up batches of our Homemade Hot Cocoa. It is super easy, a crowd pleaser and sooooo delish! Hope it helps keep you warm…



Milk (we use 2%, but can use any kind)

Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (such as Ghiradelli brand)

Granulated Sugar

Mini Marshmallows (optional)


Pour desired milk amount into your hot cocoa mug to measure. Then pour milk into a sauce pan. Add desired Cocoa Powder amount (for Lucy and Greer’s mugs I usually add about 2-21/2 tablespoons). Now add sugar, one teaspoon at a time (I usually start with one and wait to taste at end to see if it needs more). Heat on medium-high heat, stirring constantly with a whisk until all ingredients incorporate and sugar fully dissolves. Taste. If needed, add more sugar or cocoa powder. When taste is perfect, pour hot cocoa into mug/s and add mini marshmallows on top.
