Start to finish: 10 minutes

Impresses: 8

  • ½  cup cocoa powder (try using dark chocolate cocoa powder for an intensely chocolate experience)
  • ½  cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓  cup evaporated milk
  • 1  teaspoon salt
  • 1  cup Cass Clay whole milk, for serving

In a small bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, granulated sugar, evaporated milk and salt. Store the hot cocoa in a glass jar with a lid. When the craving for cocoa strikes, heat 1 cup whole milk in a small saucepot until just steaming. While the milk warms, add roughly 3 tablespoons cocoa mix to a mug. Pour the hot milk into the mug and mix well to combine. Top with a handful of mini marshmallows before serving, if desired.
