Single Cup Hot Cocoa

Single Serving Homemade Hot Cocoa Recipe

Hot cocoa is a wintertime favorite for many. Hot cocoa does a great job at warming us up when the weather is cold... and it tastes amazing. Liquid chocolate... who can argue with that?

When I was growing up, we used Nesquik to make hot cocoa. While Nesquik is easier than homemade hot cocoa, it does not taste nearly as divine.

If you are in the mood for a delicious cup of creamy hot cocoa, but do not want leftovers, this recipe is for you. It has a smooth texture and an amazing flavor that may leave you wishing you made more.
