Hot Chocolate Mix

Jarred Hot Chocolate Mix
Hot chocolate!! It's definitely one of the best things about Christmas. Loads of hot chocolate. I actually quite like this recipe. It's very chocolatey.

Honestly, you can add hot water or hot milk in it. I find that if you make this with hot milk it's a lot creamier and less likely to clump than when I made this with hot water. Sorry Alton. :P

Hot Chocolate Mix

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa (Dutch-process preferred)
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsps cornstarch
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or more to taste (optional)

Hot ChocolateDirections:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients until well incorporated. Mix can store indefinitely in an airtight container in the pantry.
  2. To serve, scoop 1/3 cup of mix into a mug and pour in 1 cup of hot milk/water, stirring vigorously to combine.
