I spent today at home with my niece Katy who was home sick from school. Strep throat. Not good. Anyway, I had a craving for hot chocolate but since I am lactose intolerant with dairy sensitivities, I cannot have store bought hot cocoa so I decided to make my own. The last couple years I’ve made my own mix but it never turns out that great. Today I did something different. I didn’t measure anything though. I put milk in a small sauce pan and put it on to simmer, then added unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla extract, unsweetened chocolate, coconut sweetened condensed milk and salt. I played around with it a bit before I was done. The result was a rich, thick cocoa that was great but too rich so I added some milk to it and it was delicious. Coconut hot chocolate. Definitely going to make this again.
