Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

The past week the weather has been a little cold.  My son told me that he really wanted some hot chocolate to heat him up. I was too happy to oblige, as I love hot chocolate. I went to all of the stores around me and every single hot chocolate mix that I found, contained sugar and sucralose (an artificial sweetener). I don’t have any issue with people using artificial sweeteners, but my son and I both get an off taste from them. I can’t explain it, but it just does not taste right to us. So after a quick scan of three supermarket aisles, I decided that the commercial brands were out. Therefore, I had to make my own mix. Come to find out, making homemade hot chocolate is quite simple. Mix a few ingredients, add some hot water and boom. Homemade Hot Chocolate!  The homemade hot chocolate mix, is simple and delicious!

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

In a large bowl or container combine the powdered sugar, dry milk, cocoa powder, salt and cornstarch.

Add all ingredients

Mix well to combine.  I recommend covering the bowl with plastic wrap or a cover and shaking it for 2-3 minutes.  You want to make sure that all of the ingredients are distributed well.

Mix well

If you want, you can then portion out the mix into individual jars.  They make great gifts.

We like to top ours off with a little whipped cream and a light dusting of cocoa powder.
