It has been years since I’ve bought store bought hot chocolate. There really just isn’t a substitute for homemade hot chocolate. It’s so much more rich and satisfying than the powder stuff. Don’t get me wrong, the packets are super convenient, but this hot chocolate can be easily made and store in your fridge for a week or more. Not to mention it’s made from items you already have in your food storage and/or fridge and can be made for much less than you can buy the powders for 😉
Homemade Hot Chocolate
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/3 cup powdered sugar
3 cans evaporated milk (or whole milk)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Dash cinnamon (optional)
Add ingredients to shopping list

In a sauce pan, add all of the ingredients and whisk together on medium heat. Continue to whisk until the sugar is dissolved and it's smooth and ready to drink. Serve warm with toppings if your choice.
