thick, rich, dairy-free(!) hot chocolate

i’ve been having a terrible craving for hot chocolate recently, and when i saw this recipe, i was pretty sure it would fit the bill.

they weren’t kidding, either. it’s “super decadent, so rich and intense.” such a thick, velvety texture.


i couldn’t possibly drink a whole mug. a very small serving was the perfect night cap (and these tiny fiesta-like bowls santa brought me were perfect for serving it in!)

5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tablespoon corn starch
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup water


start with cold water in a sauce pan, add vanilla extract, cocoa, sugar, and corn starch.


turn the heat to medium-low and stir until it gets thick, about 10-15 minutes. (don’t give up! it’s worth it)


from may i have that recipe
