Hot Cinnamon Cocoa with Cardamon!

Thank you for stopping by little island studios, please subscribe by email to follow along in family fun!

It's that time of year for hot drinks, all things chocolate, cinnamon and everything spice!  We have been working on our own hot cocoa here (hard work, I know) and we think we have it.


As always, stellar ingredients make all the difference - fair trade cocoa, Korjtne cinnamon and cardamon!  You can use grass fed milk or Eden's organic soy milk for a dairy free version - all taste spectacular.


Ingredients:

2 cups of Organic Soy Milk or Grass Fed Whole Milk
4 Tbs Cocoa - I buy fair trade
3 heaping teas  Ceylon Cinnamon
1 teas Nutmeg
pinch Cardamon
2-3 Tbs Turbino Sugar (depending on preferences)

Whipped Cream with extra sprinkle of cinnamon & cardamon

Heat in sauce pan to medium heat.  Stir in cocoa, sugar and spices.  Whisk the ingredients constantly.  Taste and tweak to your desire.  A bit of extra sugar?  We usually add ridiculous amounts of cinnamon.  Please note: do not add but a touch of cardamon to begin with.  Cardamon makes this hot cocoa amazing, but you only need a touch! 

Top with non-GMO marshmallows or freshly made whipped cream!


We wish you the happiest of holidays and a 
very merry winter!
