It is a blustery and cool day here to kick off the month of November. I couldn’t think of a better way to start it out than with a cup of super rich, extra chocolaty hot chocolate from scratch!
I am typically a coffee drinker but sometimes a girl needs a nice cup of hot cocoa. Today was definitely one of those days. I’m sitting here at my kitchen table watching the leaves fall and blow around while sipping my hot chocolate. It is a nice and rare moment of relaxation around here.
We have been so busy every weekend for the past two months getting ready for Gertie and working on the barn and stanchion. This is the first Saturday I haven’t had anything (outside of the usual farm chores) to do. Farmer Derek on the other hand is not here
to drink all of my to enjoy this hot chocolate with me. He is out butchering hogs with some friends. This is great practice for when it is time to butcher our pigs in a couple of months.
It sure is nice to have a little down time. Hot chocolate is so easy to make from scratch. It is also so much healthier than those packets you buy at the store. No nasty chemicals, refined sugars, or processed junk in it. It is all whole, real, and even nourishing ingredients. Here is how it’s done:
First, I gathered my ingredients.
Then I gently whisked in my raw milk over medium heat. I continued to stir until it was nice and hot.
Last, I poured it into a mug which I promptly sat down and drank. Mmmmmmmmmm warm, chocolaty goodness! So simple and so yummy. That’s exactly how I like things in life so, that is why this recipe is perfect for me! This drink will be a family favorite throughout this up coming holiday season, I am sure of it! I, of course, had to do a quick taste test today to be sure it would be suitable to share……….Be sure to make your own when the hot chocolate hankering hits your family!
