Hot Chocolate vs. Hot Cocoa[ 22 vote(s) ]
1.I make hot chocolate from scratch using solid chocolate 1 / 5%
2.I make hot cocoa from scratch using unsweetened cocoa powder 7 / 32%
3.I let someone else do the work for me (I use the little packets) 12 / 55%
4.I don't like hot chocolate/cocoa so this poll doesn't apply to me 2 / 9%

I make hot cocoa using unsweetened cocoa powder. I don't normally have solid chocolate on hand (someone, probably me, would eat it). I like to make mint flavored or cinnamon (Mexican style).

The truth is: we bought hot chocolate at Dunkin Donuts yesterday. Dh buys it from time to time there with the kids. They like it with cream and whipped cream Shocked

Oh brother! The poll showed up 2 hours after I actually tried to post it! (I had received some weird error message when I posted) Well then, I guess we can vote now Smile

OK, who has a good recipe for hot chocolate made with solid chocolate? I have a very old hot chocolate set (little cups and saucers and a "teapot" to hold the hot chocolate) that I'd love to use sometime! I do love good homemade hot chocolate, but don't really know how to prepare it.

I make it from scratch using unsweetened cocoa powder. I can't stand the store bought stuff.

I'd love a recipe using solid chocolate. I've never tried that.


Blessings,

I just realized this poll was in 2 forums. So, asking here in Recipes...those of you who make cocoa from scratch; do you have a tried and true recipe to share?

I've never made it, I've always used the packets. BUT, I'm an eager learner. Very Happy


Grace & Peace,
Diana

Yes, I would love a recipe too!

I voted for #3 but we don't use the packets, we use the tin of ready made stuff. It is expensive though and a tin only lasts a few days when the whole family has it.

Please post a recipe!

I don't like chocolate, but growing up, my sisters used to use Nestle's Quik in hot milk. They loved it!
