Treats to Love

Rich and creamy hot cocoa

By MIO Coalition January 2023


  • 2 cups Hiland Whole Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Cheatwoods Pure Raw Honey
  • ¼ tablespoon Griffins Vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried ancho chile powder
  • 2 Bedré Dark Chocolate Bars, chopped
  • Garnish with freshly whipped Hiland Cream, grated chocolate, cinnamon, ancho chile or marshmallows
Three cups of hot cocoa with marshmellows and chocolate shavings


In a small saucepan combine the milk, honey, cinnamon and ancho powder, and heat over medium. Keep an eye on this, as it can boil over. Break up the chocolate bar into a small microwaveable bowl, microwave for 20 seconds then stir. Repeat until the chocolate is relatively smooth. When the milk just begins to simmer, remove from heat, whisking in the melted chocolate. Whisk vigorously for 1 minute or until smooth. Serve with garnish.
