Our recipe for a delightful hot drink after snowy fun! A few winters ago, when our son was littler, he asked for some hot chocolate and we didn't have any. Improvising, I said 'how about some honey milk?" Honey milk has since become a go-to in our house and it couldn't be simpler...as the name suggests, its warm milk sweetened to taste with honey.
Add some cocoa...and voila! Hot chocolate!
The best part of this recipe? There's no processed sugar needed!
