The Sophisticated Baby

Here's a quick "coffee" recipe for your sophisticated baby (toddler).

Little E loves to pretend to drink coffee with me in the morning. I didn't have any hot cocoa packets the other day, but they're filled with all kinds of unnecessary extras anyway, and I wanted to make her a baby version of a warm drink she could have with me!

This recipe contains cocoa powder, sugar, water, and milk. If you don't have cocoa powder, you can substitute it for any mini chocolate bar, some vanilla extract, or chocolate syrup. If you use the bar or syrup, you probably won't need sugar.

Also, feel free to substitute the sugar for honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup.

1 tsp. cocoa powder
2 tsp sugar (more or less to taste)
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. milk (any kind)

Put the cocoa and sugar in a mug. Heat water in microwave (about 45 sec) or use 2nd smallest setting on Keurig. Add water to mug. Mix until cocoa and sugar have dissolved. Add milk. Make sure the milk cools the water enough. It should be just slightly warm after stirring.

E absolutely loves her "coffee," and it's a fun treat on the weekend!
