How to Make The Best Hot Chocolate On A Wood Stove

Teapot or small pot
Marshmallows or whipped cream
Chocolate bars or chocolate chip
Cinnamon (optional)

In my other recipes, I have said to make sure the wood stove is blazing hot. For this recipe it does not matter. In fact, I would recommend that you use the wood stove when the initial fire has died out and it now has beautiful ember coals. This will keep you from scalding the hot chocolate.

This will make enough hot chocolate for four people. In a pot, add 4 cups of water and 2 cups of milk (preferably whole milk for the creaminess). Designate a person to continuously stir the liquid while it sits on the wood stove.

Add cinnamon and a dash or a 1/4 teaspon of sugar (more if you want it sweeter).

You don’t want the liquid to boil, but just come to a near boil. Once it reaches this point, add the eqivalent of 1 cup of chocolate chips or 2-3 hershey’s bars (not both!). Stir continuously.

In the meantime, add marshmallows to each of the cups (unless you are using whipped cream, which you will add last).

When the chocolate has melted and resulted in a creamy delight. Remove from the wood stove and pour the amount desired over the marshmallows.

Serve and warn your patrons of the heat!

Now, sit around with candles and/or flashlights and play games or share family history stories.  Either way, make sure you go back for seconds and let’s hope the power does not come back on too soon.
