Ellen’s Homemade Hot Chocolate

This is going to be one of the best (if not the best) hot chocolate you will taste in your life. It's thicker and richer then the average hot chocolate made from a shop bought powder, and tastes so much better. It has no additives in it and is cheap to make.

We use cacao powder because it's better for you, but cocoa powder works just as well!

You can easily whip up a batch and store it in a jar on your shelf, making a drink whenever you fancy.

It makes a lovely Christmas present for your family and friends. Just pop it in an empty jam jar, decorate with a bit of ribbon and cloth and voila! It's cheap to make in bulk and you know they will certainly enjoy it!
