Hot Cocoa Recipe - Homemade Hot Cocoa

Hot Cocoa Recipe
Hot Chocolate and Hot Cocoa are my favorite, my hot chocolate post talks volumes of my addiction towards them :) A cup of Hot Cocoa is perfect for this chill weather.Mittu loves it so we have it often these days.For hot chocolate we add chocolate and fresh cream which is rich and creamy but hot cocoa is just with coco powder as main ingredient so using good quality coco powder is a must.I use Hersheys and Weikfield coco powders and stock them as and when I see it in Nilgiris.

My Notes:

  • Don't cook in high flame.
  • Reduce cocoa powder as per the variety , else it may taste bitter.
  • The color depends on the variety of cocoa powder.
  • Good quality coco powder is one of the important factors to get perfect hot Cocoa.
  • I used Hersheys coco powder this time and am loving it for the color and flavour.
  • Hot Chocolate and Hot Cocoa are entirely different in taste and texture.Hot Chocolate is rich,creamy and slightly on the creamier side  wherewas hot coco is just like milk in consistency.
  • Hot Cocoa should be made and served immediately.Reheating will change the taste and flavour of the drink.
  • Adjust sweetness according to your taste.
  • You can even mix everything and microwave it for a minute.
  • If you like cinnamon flavour then add a pinch of it.
