Some of my favorite childhood memories revolve around snow days. I loved building snowmen, sledding and attempting to ice skate. However, the best part of the day was coming inside and finding that my mom had made me a cup of hot cocoa: liquid love!
I still have a soft spot for hot cocoa today and although I enjoy the convenience of “store bought” hot chocolate mix, it doesn’t compare to what you can make at home. Let me tell you a little secret. Making some hot cocoa mix at home is super simple and makes a fantastic gift. The recipe I’m going to share with you is inspired by Alton Brown’s Hot Cocoa Mix.
