The Best Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix #Choctoberfest2019

Even though I drink hot chocolate all year round, I like making this homemade hot chocolate mix in the fall and adding to it throughout the winter season. I scoop up my chocolate into a darling mug, then I stick it under the Keurig and run hot water into my cup.  So easy, delicious, and I consider it a fabulous treat!


Some tips I have learned are that you should use the best Dutch-processed cocoa you can afford.  I also run the powered ingredients through the food processor to make it silky smooth.  I like my hot chocolate with added marshmallows, so I add them before I add the hot water.  This gets the melting process started much sooner!

How to cook The Very Best Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor.
  2. Process until all the ingredients are fully incorporated.
  3. Product should be all one color.
  4. To serve, use 2 T cocoa in 8 oz hot water or hot milk.

NOTES:

Sometimes I add a splash of cream to make it a bit more decadent. You can use more mix in your cup, or add more milk or hot water. Play around a bit for your favorite ratio.
