Six Best Cocoa Recipes
I enjoy a nice cup of hot cocoa and recently I came upon some fun recipes. Six great blends I use all the time, plus I can package up and easily give as gifts. It is always nice to give a gift of variety. Just makes it kinda special. Each one of these you can add more or less of any ingredient depending on your taste buds.
Adding a bit of the herb on top of your whipping cream gives your mug a touch of love too if you are serving to a guest.
I hope you find them fun to make! SOOO yummy! Starwest is amazing and offers FREE shipping which I have on the links. The cute sweater mugs you can find here.
Every time you order from this blog link you are helping our ministry.
The Base: 3…2…1
3 Cups confection sugar (powdered…I have to say that because I get these mixed up sometimes…HA!)
2 Cups Powdered Milk
1 Cup Cacao Powder Organic
Sift sugar and cacao powder then add powdered milk
Place in sealed mason jar and Label
Now that you have the base you can play with these fun recipes!
Mexican Hot Chocolate
This has been a popular one. You can get the KICK without the cayenne, but cayenne is good for you so why not!
1 cup of base hot cocoa
1 tsp of fresh cinnamon powder
1/2 grated Organic Nutmeg
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 cup of base
1/8 tsp sea salt
1 Cup of base
1/8 tsp salt (optional)
Pumpkin Spice (of Course)
1 cup of base
1 tsp Organic cinnamon powder
½ tsp Organic Clove Powder
Grated nutmeg…1 tsp
Sweet and Salty
1 cup base
½ cup crushed pretzels
With each of these, I placed in a small jar and topped with some of the spice. Just for fun!
Each cup of hot chocolate I put 2 heaping teaspoons into my mug. You can surely add more of anything to your liking!
The best part is to add whipping cream really a MUST!!!!
Let me know what you think or what variety you came up with!
Love to hear what you created!
God’s blessings and keeping cozy warm,

HI ALL Who wants to be WELL? There are SO many myths out there to make you believe you are eating or trying to eat healthy but still have symptoms in your daily life. One that popped out to me was taking the birth control pill to ease menstrual cramps. By just adding herbal foods into your daily routine diet can get you off harmful drugs and get your body well! Well, watch her video and find out WHY this one and others are lies that are not getting to the ROOT of you issues. Recently I discovered someone who I feel compelled to share with you. Her name is Magdalena Wszelaki, and she is going to be doing a free workshop sharing her journey back to health after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis as well as several other conditions all rooted in out of balance hormones brought on by stress and environmental toxins. Her secret: food and specifically the right foods for her body. You see, a lot of women believe that they are “eating pretty healthy.” Maybe you are one of them.
But if you are suffering from symptoms of hormone imbalances including PMS, PCOS, Endometriosis, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, fibroids, estrogen dominance, adrenal fatigue, weight gain, low libido… just to name a few, then you owe it to yourself to register now for Magdalena’s free workshop: “How to Use Food to Rebalance Your Hormones.” Register here >> https://xa202.isrefer.com/go/
(Can’t make that time? No worries. Register anyway and Magdalena will send you the replay link.) During this workshop you will learn:
- Push dried Chamomile flowers in a clean quart-size jar
- Pour boiling water over flowers to just cover them, stir slightly
- Fill the rest of the jar with vodka and seal
- Store in a cool, dark place for 4-6 weeks and shake daily
- After 4-6 weeks, pour through a strainer pushing out as much of the herb as you can. Store in a tincture dark bottle with dropper. ( I love these bottles easy to label and easy to use for measuring.)
- This will keep for up to 2 years.
Essential Oils for around the home:Eucalyptus Peppermint Citrus Passion ( I put in my smoothy or water every day) Lavender Aligning Frankincense Lemongrass Lemon Immune Strength (MUST HAVE) use in most of my DIY cleaners with baking soda Purify (use in many DIY) Nutmeg (love for diffusing) Black Pepper Pain Ease (amazing after a long day) Relieve Me (so helps in many illness, breathing, and joints too) White Grapefruit
Colds, Flu, Cleaning…Again these are just ones we use all the time, some every day! If you suffer from congestion or sinus the peppermint and eucalyptus are really a must-have! I put them in steam water and breath in with a towel over my head and it takes the pressure away RIGHT AWAY! Great for any cold that is coming on! So amazing!
Great if you feel a cold coming on as well! I LOVE RMO!I love this company and I love their product quality. A very simple and easy choice for our family and hope you find the same results! God bless you, Love deeper, talk sweeter, Lee
