If you are not sure how to start a campfire, we have step-by-step tips to show you how!

Choose the type of campfire cooking equipment you want to use to heat the milk over low heat.

You can use a regular saucepan or a camp coffee pot to hold the milk. 

Then, place it over a low-heat campfire using a grill grate or low flame on a camp stove or RV stove.

As The Milk Begins To Heat

Add 2 tablespoons of the campfire hot cocoa mix to the bottom of your favorite camp coffee mug then top with 1 cup of warmed milk and stir until combined.

The thing I really like about this recipe is that you can make individual servings or large batches … you know how difficult it can be to make camping meals for two!

Camp Cooking Tip: We prefer to drink 2% milk normally but I like using whole milk for this campfire hot cocoa recipe so it’s nice and creamy. If you want to really splurge, you can use half and half instead of milk.

Camp Cooking Tip: Don’t scald the milk, heat it slowly and don’t let it heat to a boil.
