depends on how many you make


Stove Top


1 tsp
sea salt
1 1/3 c
raw sugar (brown sugar will work)
2 c
unsweetened cocoa powder


2 c
whole vanilla bean

Directions Step-By-Step

Toss the salt and sugar together in the blender until they are powdered. Mix in the cocoa powder. Store mix in a jar or container until ready to use.

To make, simply add 1 heaping tablespoon of mix onto a mug of warm milk or water.
Vanilla Sugar:

Split the vanilla bean open with a sharp knife. Scrape the contents into the sugar, then cut up the bean into a few large pieces and put it in with the sugar as well. Let the flavors develop in an airtight container for 1 to 2 weeks. After that time, remove the bean pieces and give the sugar a stir. You can use it in coffee creamer or to flavor other drinks and treats.
