Hot Chocolate

Happy 2011! I wish you and yours only the very best for this year ~ here is a basic recipe for the all time best mid-winter indulgence, hot chocolate ~ ENJOY!

1 cup water
2 tablespoons pure unsweetened cocoa powder (verify soy-free!)
2 tablespoons cane sugar, or light brown sugar, or dark brown sugar, or granulated sweetener of choice
1 tablespoon DariFree powder (Vance's)
  1. In a small sauce pan, whisk together water, cocoa powder, cane sugar, and DariFree powder; whisk to dissolve all lumps.
  2. Place saucepan over medium high heat; bring to a simmer; stir; remove from heat; pour off into mug.
Serve immediately with marshmallows, ground cinnamon, and chili powder of choice (all optional).

Servings: 1 cup (for 1 person)
Prep Time: 7 minutes

Omit DariFree powder; replace 1 cup water with 1 cup milk of choice.

Using dark brown sugar as the sweetener will lend a caramel flavor to this beverage.


  1. This sounds great! I haven't been able to find one that doesn't have cross contamination concerns. Thanks!

  2. I really like Ultimate Superfoods Pure Cocoa Powder aand zNavitas Naturals Raw Chocolate Powder - I hope you really enjoy it!
