Extra-thick hot chocolate kids can spoon up
This is Max's favorite hot chocolate. It's thickened, so it's good for kids with swallowing challenges or sensory issues. Oh, and it's yummy!
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
1 cup milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
5 .16 oz packets of Hormel Thick & Easy Instant Food & Beverage Thickener (nectar consistency, taste-free), or about 4 & 1/2 teaspoons Thick-It Instant Food and Beverage Thickener Unflavored
Mix sugar, cocoa, salt and thickener in a large mug. Nuke milk in microwave for about 1 & 1/2 minutes, until hot, or heat in saucepan. Slowly add milk to cocoa mixture, and stir a lot. Enjoy watching your child enjoy!
