Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk cold water, sugar, cocoa powder, flour, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a saucepan until smooth. Place over low heat; bring to a simmer, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened and hot, about 4 minutes. Stir in milk; heat until hot chocolate just forms bubbles around the edge. Mix vanilla extract into hot chocolate. Blend until smooth with an immersion blender to make the drink slightly frothy.

Delicious! I used tapioca flour instead of wheat but otherwise followed the recipe...for the first cup. Then I got to thinking there was something missing and made another one with a generous shake of cayenne pepper. Both versions were very good and both have commandeered their way into my family's afternoon snack rotation. Thanks swaneerasmey for the recipe. Read More

This turned out great!! The only thing I changed was using vanilla almond milk instead of regular milk because my son can't have dairy. Changed the servings to 3 instead of 12 and my 2 kids drank it all. Read More

I cut the recipe down so it only made 3 servings and in doing so I kind of altered a few ingredients slightly. I also added a few squirts of Hershey's syrup for some extra chocolate flavor. SOOOO CREAMY!!!! Read More

Best hot chocolate in Texas! I added a pinch of cayenne for a tiny kick and it's perfect. I recommend using a medium low temperature and stirring often - it does take about 5-10 minutes longer than the recipe states. Read More
