 Nothing says Christmas like nestling in blankets and enjoying a steaming mug of cocoa with your family. Today, Great Harvest in Tulsa would like to offer a few hot chocolate recipes to make this experience even more heavenly.

Classic hot chocolate


4 cups milk
1 cinnamon stick
10 ounces semisweet chocolate (pick one with a high cocoa content)
Whipped cream & chocolate shavings (to serve)

Chop your chocolate up into small chunks and set to one side. Heat the milk until very hot, but don’t boil it. Add your cinnamon stick and let the flavor infuse into the milk over an extremely low heat for around 10 minutes. Remove the cinnamon stick, and reheat the milk. Add your chocolate, whisking as you go, and continue to whisk until the chocolate has all melted and the milk is frothy. Serve in warm mugs with a dollop of whipped cream and chocolate shavings to top it off.

Peanut butter cocoa


2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
5 ounces milk chocolate (chopped into pieces)
¼ cup creamy peanut butter

Warm the milk and cream in a heavy-based saucepan over a medium-low heat. Add the chocolate and whisk until it has melted and combined (this should take around 5 minutes). Add the peanut butter and whisk until the mixture is smooth. Serve immediately!

White chocolate coconut cocoa


1 cup whole milk
1 cup coconut milk (unsweetened is best)
1 cup heavy cream
5 ounces white chocolate (chopped)
1 tablespoon rum (optional!)

Warm the milk, coconut milk and cream together in a heavy-based saucepan over a low-medium heat. Add the chocolate and whisk until melted (5 minutes or so). Add the rum (if you’re using it) and whisk together. Serve and enjoy!
