Every time we come inside from tobogganing or playing in the snow, the boys start undressing from their winter gear and as for hot cocoa. I don't blame them! We live in Canada and it's cold playing in the snow!

I love making everything from scratch, our bread, our furniture and our Hot Cocoa. I feel like there is so much more value in homemade goodness. So today, I am sharing and Old Fashioned Hot Cocoa recipe that is prepared on the stove!

Have you ever made hot cocoa from scratch and noticed how annoying cocoa is!? It's like a cat and is so stubborn, it never wants to get wet! But the trick is to take a little hot water and whip it before adding your milk. This also keeps it from coming out lumpy.
