A few days later, dreaming about that cocoa as I washed dishes in my cold kitchen reminded me that I had learned a trick for flavoring hot cocoa. Just put in a drop of extract.
I buy the cheap big can mix of hot cocoa.
Want one that tastes like ....
Almond joy? Put in a drop of coconut extract and almond extract
Mounds? coconut extract
French Vanilla? vanilla extract
Mint Chocolate? peppermint extract
Chocolate Raspberry? raspberry extract
And for my Graham Cracker one? - sprinkle of brown sugar, drop of honey and vanilla
Smores? add marshmallows to the above graham cracker one.
