DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the milk and water(or milk) in a medium saucepan. Once it comes to a simmer, reduce heat slightly and whisk in cocoa powder, sea salt and ginger. Whisk vigorously to incorporate.
  • Once the cocoa is hot enough for your liking (about 3-5 minutes), remove from heat and add vanilla extract. Stir once more. Sweeten to taste.
  • Take your ginger candies and rub them along the rims of your serving glasses or mugs. Eat or discard; they get mushy when added to the beverage.
  • Pour in hot cocoa and top with coconut cream(in Recipe#504526), whipped cream or marshmallows – whatever you like.
