Welly: ” I want some hot chocolate”
Me: “Sorry Welly, we don’t have any”
Welly: “Just look in a recipe book and make some”
He got me there.
Here is a really easy and tasty recipe for homemade hot chocolate. This is from the Make-A-Mix cookbook. There is a large quantity recipe that you can store in a large ziplock bag or in a container. Just as long as its air tight it will keep for A LONG TIME. Then there is a mini mix recipe that makes about two large glasses of hot chocolate. This is handy so you can try it out and see if you like it.
