Hot chocolate is one of my favorite drinks. But I always used to get boxed cocoa, or grab something from Dunkin Donuts.
And while those drinks tasted delicious, they're packed with sugar and a bunch of unnatural ingredients most of the time. So when I decided to get healthier, I wanted to find something to scratch my cocoa itch without completely sacrificing my nostalgia and love for regular hot cocoa.
Good news, I found the perfect recipe to turn chicory coffee into a delicious and completely satisfying cocoa (and it's much healthier).
Check out the chicory hot cocoa recipe below!

- 3 tbsp Roasted chicory root granules
