Mix 1 heaping tbsp. Dutch cocoa and 1 tbsp. sugar together in a drinking mug. Pour in about 2 tbsp. hot milk and mix together to form a paste. Doing this helps to dissolve the cocoa and results in a non-clumpy drink. Slowly pour in the rest of the milk and mix thoroughly. If needed, add more sugar to taste. Recipe can be multiplied and made in a saucepan to serve more.
Any of Savory Spice Shop’s flavored vanilla bean sugars will make your hot chocolate even more satisfying. Try the Peppermint Vanilla Bean Sugar for a great holiday treat.
