  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder the kind you use for baking
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup water or use non dairy milk to make it even more decadent!
  • 1 cup non dairy "eggnog"


  • In a 2 cup measuring cup mix the cocoa powder, cinnamon, and maple syrup. It will be slow to mix, and just when you think I'm crazy and that it will never come together it will suddenly form a magical chocolate paste.
  • Add water and whisk until completely combined.
  • Add non dairy "eggnog" and whisk again.
  • Heat in microwave until hot (alternatively use stove to heat the mixture.). This took me about 2 minutes.
  • Dived the mixture into two Dixie® To Go cups and serve!


Optional add in—spike your hot chocolate with 1 teaspoon of instant espresso powder for an early morning wake up!
