Maple Hot Chocolate
Ingredients: for each person, you will need:
- 1 cup (250 ml) milk of your choice: almond milk, soy milk, whole or skim milk. You can also use a combination of milk and heavy cream for a smooth, rich taste.
- 1 - 2 tablespoons of Maple Roch pure, organic maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- Place all ingredients in a sauce pan and whisk together.
- Heat over medium heat stirring frequently until milk scalds, and this is just the point before the milk boils. You will see it steaming but not yet boiling.
- Remove it from the heat and carefully pour into mugs.
You can make these maple hot chocolates really special by adding whipped maple cream to them! Make maple whipped cream by whipping 1/2 a cup of heavy cream (around 35%) with 1 tablespoon Maple Roch organic maple syrup.
