Kids in the Kitchen: Hot Cocoa Nightcap
This week it’s all about getting kids in the kitchen to cook! Nooblette Chef and I will be cooking up some delicious goodies and I’ll be snapping away pictures as she gets her hands dirty and delicious. Our inspiration for these recipes comes from a great, little cookbook we checked out from the library, “365 Foods Kids Love to Eat: Nutritious and Kid-Tested” by: Sheila Ellison and Judith Gray. This first recipe is a kid-friendly nightcap that is relaxing and soothing right before bedtime. Unlike the traditional brandy or whiskey that some adults partake in, this little hot cocoa kid version will have your little one beaming ear to ear. My daughter absolutely loved cooking this up before bed and sipping it in her pajamas. So pull out these minimal ingredients, grab your little one, and let’s get cooking! Have an awesome day everyone! 🙂
Kid-Friendly Hot Cocoa Nightcap
Serves: 1 serving
- 1 teaspoon cocoa powder

Step 1: Put the honey, cocoa powder, and 1 tablespoon of milk into a pot on low heat, (or in a microwaveable bowl), and stir until shiny.
Step 2: Gradually pour in the rest of the milk continuing to stir. If using a microwave, heat for 2 minutes. If using the stove, continue whisking on low heat.
Step 3: Whisk until evenly mixed and heated through.
