White House Hot Cocoa

Eileen Goltz | Dairy

I don’t know where I got this recipe but supposedly, it’s the one served, in the White House, when ever it’s required.


6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

6 tablespoons sugar

Pinch of salt

2 1/2 cup milk

2 1/2 cup cream

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Pinch of cinnamon

Whipped Cream for topping

Orange zest for topping

Cocoa powder for topping


In a sauce pan combine the cocoa, salt, and sugar. Add the milk. Whisk to combine and heat to dissolve. Then add the light cream, cinnamon, vanilla. Whisk to combine and heat to a simmer. Whisk just before serving and pour the cocoa into warm mug. Top with whipped cream, cocoa powder, and fine orange zest.
