Dairy-Free Homemade Hot Cocoa


I recently found out that neither of my daughters can have any milk whatsoever (not w/out getting sick or having rashes). If you have a lactose intolerance or milk allergy, you know how hard it is to find pre-packaged sweets that don't contain milk.

At Christmastime hot cocoa is a staple in my home, but it's impossible to find it at the grocery store without milk in the ingredients. I also like to avoid the extra trip and cost of buying dairy-free hot cocoa mix at the health-foods store. Luckily my local grocery store carries dairy-free carob baking chips, so I've come up with a dairy-free hot cocoa recipe that is so decadent, it's like drinking chocolate syrup. You can thin it out with more dairy-free milk if you want to, but why on earth would you want to do that? Merry Christmas!

Ingredients:
*makes 4 large servings

-5 cups dairy-free milk (unsweetened & plain-flavored) ex: soymilk, rice milk, coconut milk. I used plain unsweetened soymilk.

-2 cups dairy-free carob baking chips

-1/4 cup powdered sugar

Instructions:

1. Pour milk into a small saucepan and heat on the stove on medium high until warm (a minute or two)

2. Add in carob chips and stir frequently with a whisk until melted.

3. Add in powdered sugar and bring to a simmer, continuing to stir (a few minutes).

    1. It's been challenging. Have to make a lot of homemade stuff for the girls. As for myself, well I make myself sick on cheese every now and then because it's worth it to me! Lol.
