Salted Hot Chocolate

By Laura Hahn


“Everyone loves a mug of hot chocolate on a cold day. I avoid using store-bought mixes filled with tons of sugar and chemicals. My version is dairy free and gluten free. Whipping up a batch in your kitchen will make the whole house smell like a chocolate wonderland. I add a bit of salt to help make the chocolate flavor shine.”




  • 2 cups water


  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder (Hershey’s is a gluten-free brand)
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2-4 tablespoons sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla



Heat water in a large saucepan. Once it starts to simmer, add cocoa powder and whisk together well.

Add milk, sugar, salt and vanilla. Whisk together and bring to a low boil. Watch carefully because it will foam up and boil over.

Keep mixing well, on and off, for a few minutes. If it starts to bubble up, remove from the heat for a few seconds. The mixture will begin to thicken as the water evaporates.

Serve in mugs, topped with marshmallows, whipped topping or a Valentine’s Day marshmallow Peep to keep it festive
