Naturally Dreamy

A blog about my life as an INFP living with an ESFJ, INTJ, and my pup. I blog about earth-friendly living and life through my eyes – not necessarily in that order. Come put your feet up where life is Naturally Dreamy!

Go-To Hot Chocolate


As promised, another of my go-to recipes!
This has been adapted many, many times over the years, from Hershey’s single-serving Hot Cocoa recipe.

I like hot chocolate. I have it often!
Here is how I make it – it is super easy to change-up according to what you need!

  • A little hot water
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Cocoa
  • Sweetener: stevia, sugar, or other
  • Enough milk to fill your mug
  1. When the water is heated, add about 2-3 T of it to your mug. You will melt the cocoa in it.
  2. Add the cocoa and sweetener to the hot water. Stir it up, until it is clump free. (1T or less of cocoa for low-caffeine and lightly cocoa-ey, 2T  for traditional tasting cocoa.) You don’t have to measure, measure – I just use spoons, and approximations!
  3. Pour in the milk until it is full.
  4. Heat in microwave until there is a light layer of foam on the top, about 30 seconds – 1 minute.
  5. Drink!

By the way, why do I use the microwave?:

If I heat it on the stove as traditional cocoa is made, then there is high percentage chance that it will “burn”. Sugar substitutes (and even sugar one time) – get this weird “burnt” taste even though I heated it gently. 🙂 So, that is why I skip heating sugar-subs on the stove.

Happy Wednesday and have a great rest of your week.

What is your favorite hot drink?
