I have made this recipe for Christmas gifts many times and I hear back that not only is it great hot chocolate thats rich and thick but it makes an awesome creamer to strong coffee. I sent a batch to work only to have it come back empty. When I questioned my husband as to what happened he said they ate it all!! Can you believe that!! None of this goes to waste in my house or at husbands work!!

How to Make Awesome Hot Cocoa

Step-by-Step

  1. Measure all of the ingredients into a dry clean bowl.
  2. Use a whisk to stir everything together. If the cocoa clumps up, smash the little balls with a fork.
  3. When everything is evenly distributed, transfer the Hot Cocoa Mix to a clean coffee can, or a sealed canister or measure into 1/2 pint jars with lids for gifts.
  4. Use 2 cups of sugar if you are making this for kids. The extra sweetness makes it especially kid-friendly.
  5. For grown-ups you could add 1/4 cup of instant coffee for a nice mocha flavor.
  6. To Prepare: Put 1/3 cup of Hot Cocoa Mix into a cup or mug. Add boiling water to the top. Stir and serve.
