Snow & Hot Cocoa
I can't believe it...We have snow here in Davidson, North Carolina and it got me thinking about all of our snowy days when we lived in Ohio. We actually had to don our snow boots, gloves, and hats! It was fun for like a minute.
Anyways, whenever it snowed in Ohio, I always had hot cocoa waiting to warm up the kids when they came in after sledding fun. Everyone knows that hot cocoa is better made with milk, but then you have to stand at the stove and make sure you don't scald the milk, stirring and stirring and stirring. The Cocomotion solves that issue, and it is probably one of the best kitchen appliances I own.
Here is where I would normally tell you where to buy the Cocomotion and encourage you to do so. If you are inclined to spend almost $200 to make hot cocoa, go for it! Somehow, this piece of equipment became iconic, amazing, and unavailable. I have owned mine for almost 20 years and I love that you can set it and forget it. Why, oh why, did Mr. Coffee discontinue making the Cocomotion?
Best Cocoa Ever
4 Cups Milk
1/3 to 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
3/4 cup Raw Sugar
2-3 Giant Marshmallows
Whipped Cream (Make it with Heavy Whipping Cream in your Vita Mix for a serious indulgence)
Add all ingredients to a saucepan or Cocomotion if you are lucky enough to have one! Yes, the marshmallows go in as well. You can add more marshmallows later, but these add a yummy creaminess to the hot cocoa because they melt. Once everything is heated up, I usually add more marshmallows and a dollop of whipped cream. So yummy!
I know, the price..Sigh!
