Make Your Own Hot Cocoa Mix
By: Posted On: 2011-08-25

I recently stumbled across this recipe while web surfing and I just had to share it. It never occurred to me to make my own powdered cocoa mix and now I can. This would also make a nice holiday gift, placed in a Mason jar and decorated with a nice ribbon and a homemade gift tag.

3/4 C. cocoa

1/2 t salt

1 quart powdered milk

dry sugar substitute equal to 1 1/2 C. sugar

 

Optional:

 

Mexican Cocoa: add 2 to 3 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

Mocha Hot Cocoa: add 1/3 C. instant coffee

 

Mix ingredients well and store in an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place.

To prepare, add to 2T of the mix to 6oz boiling water. For Mexican cocoa, add 2 to 3 t per cup of ground cinnamon to the powdered mix. For Mocha, add 1/3t instant coffee per cup to the powdered mix.
