Homemade Hot Chocolate (using maple syrup)

homemadehotchocolateIn the last 24 hours the temperature has dropped from 40 degrees to 1 degree.  Nothing sounds better on days like these, than hot chocolate.  I went searching through the cabinets the other night but we were out so I went about coming up with my own recipe…here it is!  I love it so much more than the packets now:)

1 1/4 c 2% milk

2 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tsp maple syrup (you can also substitute white sugar or sweetener – you will not need as much sweetener so check the packet for the conversions)

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

dash of cinnamon

Heat milk for 1 minute and 45 seconds.  Stir in cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon to warm milk until combined.  Add more maple syrup/sugar if you want sweeter!
