Single-Serve Homemade Hot Cocoa

Single-Serve Homemade Hot Cocoa

It’s just a little chilly here in the DFW Metroplex, and I don’t know about you, but when it starts to get a little chilly there’s nothing I love more than a cozy cup of hot cocoa! With just a few ingredients you can create a scrumptious drink that helps you save a little pocket change,  and not have to leave the house!

1 serving


  • 1 ¼ cup milk or non-dairy alternative
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa/Cacao Powder 
  • 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup/Honey/Agave
  • Optional – a pinch of Cinnamon!


  1. In a sauce pan, warm up milk to a soft boil;
  2. Add in cocoa powder, cinnamon, and maple syrup;
  3. After about 2 minutes pour into a cup and enjoy it!

Main Directions:

  1. Roll out Pie Crust dough and line a pie dish with the dough.
  2. Cover dough with aluminum foil and pie weights (or extra cooking dish) so that dough can ‘par-cook’ at 400F for 16-17 minutes.
  3. Uncover and poke fork ‘holes’ in the bottom of the dough and cook an additional 6-7 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to 350F.
  5. While the dough is cooking, saute oil, spinach and garlic in a saute pan until golden brown–set aside.
  6. Mix together eggs, milk, spinach mixture, roast tomatoes, and feta cheese.
  7. Pour mixture into the pie pan with crust.
  8. Bake for 45-60 minutes, making sure to avoid overbaking.

Let cool for 15 minutes and enjoy!
