Calling all Star Wars fans!! Here is a fun hot cocoa that you’ll want to make again and again…I mean, really, who doesn’t love everything Star Wars? The kids will think you are the most awesome parent ever when you serve Star Wars Yoda Hot Cocoa up during the long cold days of winter.
Note, if you have a child that is lactose intolerant you can use lactose-free milk in this recipe and it taste the same. Lactose-free milks are real dairy. They just add the natural enzyme lactase to the milk so that those that are lactose intolerant or sensitive can break down the lactose in the milk.
Anyways, the Yoda Hot Cocoa is a fun drink for the kiddos and adults alike. I recommend drinking it while watching the Star Wars IV: A New Hope. Going to pull the “back in my day” card, but this, in my mind, is actually the first Star Wars movie and not the fourth. I remember going to the drive-in (remember those?) when I was very young to watch it. So it was the first Star Wars movie released even if it is the fourth in the series 🙂
