It smells like snow outside, and I find nothing more comforting for the aching joints after walking the dog on a cold winter’s evening than a nice, hot cup of cocoa in front of the living room fire. This recipe packs a punch, but it deals very effectively with headaches, back pain, and hangovers that just won’t quit. A good friend of mine’s mother, who is receiving treatment for bone marrow cancer, swears by it for helping her fall asleep when she feels ill.
1 cup milk
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1-2 tbsps sugar (any kind will do)
1 tbsp THC butter
6 marshmallows or whipped cream and broken candy pieces
- Scald (bring to just before boiling) milk in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Milk boils and then burns very quickly, so be vigilant. Remove from heat.
2. Whisk in cocoa, sugar and butter. Pour into a large mug. The butter will rise to the top of the cocoa, but some decorative toppings will take care of that!
3. Top with marshmallows or whipped cream and broken pieces of your favorite holiday candy.
