Cooking Cocoa with Corinne

Hi Everyone!
Here is episode one for my show “Recipes with Corinne!”  I am showing you how to make hot chocolate because it is the first recipe I learned, it’s easy to make and it’s delicious!

At my house we call hot chocolate “Kid Coffee,” because we drink it when mom has her adult coffee.  There are a lot of ways to make kid coffee!  I use cocoa mix because I am a kid.  But you can make it like my mom does with milk and cream, chocolate and butter and sugar.  If you do it that way, you definitely need to have an adult to help because you have to smash the chocolate with a hammer!

For us kids, cocoa mix is easiest.  Sometimes I use half water and half creamer instead of milk.  And sometimes we use almond milk or vanilla soy milk.  We haven’t tried rice milk, but there are a lot of different kinds of milk to use.  You should try making it with different kinds of milk to see what you like the most.  If you make it too hot, just add some ice, or cold water or cold milk to cool it down.

My sister likes to add marshmallows but I do not.  You should add them if you like them.  If you add them to the hot chocolate in the pan just before you turn off the heat, they get melty and frothy.  You might like that too.

I hope you enjoy my show!
Thank you for watching!

See you soon,

I have been cooking with my mom for 3 years and my mom lets me do it all by myself if I ask first and she’s there to watch.  Remember, never cook without an adult that knows how.  Always put your hair up, sleeves up and wash your hands.

I have also told my mom to stop talking during my show.  She promised not to do that again.

  1. I loved your first episode. I never thought of making cocoa that way, I always just use the microwave. I’ll definitely try it your way, for sure! You said you were nervous but you were great!


  2. What a great video on how to make one of my favorite drinks! Thank you Corinne for facts on how to make it!


  3. Nice work, Corinne!! Your video is awesome! I can’t wait to see the next episode in your show! And maybe one day I can be a guest cook?? And I promise not to talk during filming again. 🙂


  4. How fun! Great job, Corrine! Looking forward to more recipes! Summer’s coming… maybe homemade lemonade?
