Email Grocery List

  1. Combine chocolate chips, cocoa powder, nut butter, salt, and 1/2 cup nut milk in a small saucepan. Whisk over medium heat until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth, about 1 1/2 minutes.
  2. Whisk in 1 cup nut milk in a slow, steady stream, and continue whisking until cocoa is steaming, about 1 1/2 minutes. Don’t let it come to a boil or the cocoa will separate.
  3. Taste a spoonful. (Be careful: It’s hot.) If you prefer a thinner hot cocoa, add up to 1/2 cup additional milk. If you prefer it sweeter, add a teaspoon of sugar at a time, tasting after each addition. Divide among cups and serve hot.
