So nice and easy to enjoy on a cold day... AuntSana took the beautiful picture and kicked it up a notch. She dipped the rim in maple syrup and then in cocoa. Brilliant!

  1. Whisk everything together and heat over medium low heat for about 10 minutes, whisking often. Please note that the grated nutmeg is to taste.
  2. If you have an immersion blender, whip the mixture up with it for about a minute to make it a little frothy.

Made it this morning for my boys (3 and 1) - minus the nutmeg. They loved it, and I like that it doesn't contain refined sugar!

This is decent for a healthier option. I wanted a hot cocoa recipe that didn't use refined sugar, and I also subbed in unsweetened almond milk because we're dairy-free. I don't have an immersion blender so I just whisked the heck out of it with a metal whisk. It was a little thin so I added some more cocoa powder and whisked some more, and that helped a bit.

Just didn't taste good to myself and my grandson. It had an odd flavor with the maple syrup. Was looking for a healthier hot chocolate, but we will keep looking.
