hot cocoa mix - a cinch to make!
For the kid in us, making your own cocoa mix is not only a cinch to prepare, you also get the added benefit of knowing what’s inside the mix. This hot chocolate recipe is so good you’ll wonder why you hadn’t made it before.
  • ½ cup Dutch cocoa powder
  • ½ cup turbinado sugar
  • 3 oz. dark chocolate (at least 60%), finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons powdered milk
  • pinch of sea salt
  1. In a bowl mix ingredients. Store in a jar.
  2. For a single serving, heat 1 cup of milk then add 3 tablespoons of the cocoa mix. Stir until combined.
The Culinary Chase’s Note: Stir with a candy cane to add a bit of peppermint or top whipped cream. Enjoy!
