I don’t feel bad about making this hot cocoa for my girls a few times a week or more during the winter.  With just a little raw honey for sugar and good whole milk for the cocoa and cream, this drink is a perfect way to end the day.  And it’s easy enough for a 3 and 4 year old to make.  Whipped cream does not, in my mind need to have sugar added. Especially since it is normally added to a dessert which already has sugar.  The sweetness in the cream itself is perfect.  I am planning on a whole milk vs skim milk post soon because this is something I am very passionate about and one of the hardest things for people to change to, but I truly believe that whole milk will not make you gain weight and all children especially should drink it instead of skim or 2 percent. Like I said, I will post an entry soon outlining why I believe this, but feel free to google it now if you think I’m bonkers.  Anyway, back to hot cocoa.  After a night of mental power struggles with my two monkeys, we all needed a reset button and this was the perfect one.  You can’t help but smile, laugh and have fun when cooking with your kids.  And I love them like crazy.  P1030269P1030296
