This is a super simple recipe, and I only made one slight change. Both of my guys are allergic to tree nuts, so at the very end, I split the batch in two and only add the almond to "my" half. You definitely can go with other extracts as well, caramel would be great, or mint.
You can cap it off with mini marshmallows or some whipped cream, but it's really good on it's own. Thank you so much to Vicky H. for sharing her recipe!

Looks so yummy - I do love homemade hot cocoa! It's so good!ReplyDelete
I really need to make it more often!Delete
What a delicious twist on hot chocolate!ReplyDelete
Once a year, I make hot chocolate mix for enjoying and gifting... we then use that throughout the winter instead of the packets. Because, the homemade stuff is just sooo good.
That's a great idea, it really is so much better than store bought!Delete
