Creamy Dairy Free Hot Chocolate

It's freezing cold here and it's been a long week. Lots of ups and downs. This morning I decided to end the week on high note with a "sweet" surprise for my kids after school. Homemade chocolate chip cookies and hot chocolate.

We don't have any food restrictions, but I have been trying to limit dairy in my diet. When I came across a hot chocolate recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe that suggested using chocolate almond milk I had to give it a try. I adapted the recipe to my liking and it's a winner!! No one here had any idea that I used chocolate almond milk in place of dairy milk.

Creamy Dairy Free Hot Chocolate

2/3 cup of cocoa powder (I used 
1 cup of sugar
1/8 tsp salt
2/3 cups of water
half gallon Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk

In a saucepan, add cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and water. Whisk together and stir constantly to prevent burning. Turn down the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.

Add Chocolate Almond Milk and let simmer until hot, but not boiling. Serve immediately or transfer to a slow cooker. You can keep it on warm for several hours.

Then top with whip cream (if you don't need to be dairy free), marshmallows, Piroutte chocolate wafers, sprinkles and enjoy! 

Cheers to Friday and sweet gestures towards the ones you love!
