Hot chocolate Mix recipe powdered milk
Oh boy do I love hot cocoa. And that’s never going to change. I’ve got WAY many childhood memories and nostalgia tied up into a piping hot cup of cocoa with marshmallows on top. It’s the perfect treat for a cold night, paired with snuggles on the couch and a good movie. I feel cozy inside just writing that.
When I’m at a hotel and see a packet of hot cocoa mix, I’ll usually make myself a cup, driven by my previously mentioned nostalgia. Though I have to admit that I cringe when I read the list of ingredients on the back. Most store-bought hot cocoa mixes have hydrogenated oils, preservatives, and other undesirable things in them. The good news is when you make it at home, none of that gets included, and the results are still delicious. Just keep the hot cocoa mix in the pantry and add hot water whenever you want some homemade hot cocoa.
To start, sift 2 cups of confectioner’s sugar into a bowl.
Next, sift 1 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder.
Hooray for no lumps!
Add 2 cups of powdered milk to the mix.
Stir it all together until combined.
The hot cocoa mix is now ready to be stored, either in one big container, or in little jars that you can give to friends.
I like to throw some mini marshmallows on top, too.
Whenever you want a cup of hot cocoa, simply combine equal parts hot water and cocoa mix, and you’re in business. Enjoy!
