Easy to make with three simple ingredients you most likely already have on hand, Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix is a staple in our house.
It’s a winter necessity. Well… and a spring. Even a fall necessity when the leaves begin to turn. But when the first snowflake falls… it’s absolutely divine to have your own Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix on hand and ready for cozy nights by the fire, sledding parties, and for giving as gifts.
It’s incredibly easy to make your own — and so convenient. Not to mention… healthier, as you know which ingredients are really in your mix. Top with marshmallows, whipping cream or other ideas listed below and enjoy!
This makes a large batch, which is perfect for gifts. Of if you love hot chocolate like we do. Cut the ingredients in half for a smaller batch.
4 cups powdered sugar
2 cups unsweetened cocoa (I love dutch-process but any good quality will do)
2 teaspoons fine sea salt
In a large bowl, sift together powdered sugar, unsweetened cocoa, and sea salt. Store in an airtight container. For a smooth, no lumps texture in the mix, sift the sugar, cocoa, and salt into a large bowl. The extra step is worth it, especially if it’s for a gift.
For individual servings:
2 tablespoons hot chocolate mix
1 cup warm milk.
• whipping cream
• chocolate shavings
• fudge sauce
• cinnamon stick
• candy cane
For larger batches of hot chocolate, warm milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stir in 2 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix for every 1 cup of milk.
