Hojicha Hot Chocolate

Perfect for an evening at home, Hojicha Hot Chocolate will keep you feeling warm and cozy.

Sometimes when we’re craving a hojicha latte, we like to switch things up a bit and experiment with a new ingredient. There are so many flavors that pair well with hojicha, and chocolate is definitely one of them. Hojicha Powder already has lovely roasted chocolatey notes, and so it’s no wonder the two taste even better together.

This recipe is as easy as it gets, yet is a definite improvement on your average cup of hot cocoa. If you’re looking to keep this simple and sugar-free, use unsweetened milk and omit both the sweetener and marshmallows. On the other hand, if you’re in the mood to indulge then go all in. Drizzle in maple syrup and treat yourself to as many marshmallows as you’d like. You could even add top your drink with whipped cream or hojicha syrup.
