Not a fan of peppermint, but still want a warming holiday drink? Then this is for you.

This gingerbread hot cocoa is both sweet and spicy. It contains simple ingredients and is quick to make.

This hot cocoa contains:

Non-dairy milk – Oat milk is my favorite, because it’s extra rich and creamy.

Brown sugar – you may sub other sugars or maple syrup.

Cocoa powder – Dutch-processed is my favorite.

Molasses – this is optional, but highly recommended if you want that traditional gingerbread flavor.

Spices – ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice .

Optional toppings – marshmallows and whipped cream.

To make this hot cocoa, whisk together all ingredients in a medium saucepan.

Adjust sweetness if needed.

Warm over medium-high.

Serve and top with marshmallows and whipped cream.
