Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix is super chocolaty, so easy to mix up and made with simple ingredients!

Of course we are huge hot chocolate drinkers around here. I mean, of course. The colder temperatures have descended upon us in the Northeast and we probably won’t see shorts weather again until May…SOOOOO I call these our “Official Hot Chocolate Drinking Months.”

I’ve made hot chocolate a lot of different ways; we’ve use packages, we’ve tried the new K-Cups in our coffee maker, I’ve made it in a pinch with chocolate syrup and if I’m feeling fancy I’ve even made a rich melted chocolate version.

But this simple, inexpensive, homemade version of Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix is my favorite, let me show you how!

See how simple?

The recipe for hot chocolate is so super easy. I started with Sugar in the Raw, aka turbinado sugar.

And just pulsed it in my blender with a little salt until it became a powder.

Next I just mixed in some unsweetened cocoa powder and voila! That’s it!

You get a perfectly sweetened (but not too sweet) chocolate mix. I mixed it with some warm milk for creamy hot chocolate!

It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

After trying and not liking some other recipes I must say this is a great recipe for hot chocolate mix! I’ve made it twice. The first time I added white sugar as this is what I had on hand. The second time I used 1.5 cups Stevia in the Raw (bakers bag) to cut back on sugar. This cocoa mix is pretty dog-on good for being zero calories (plus I am using 1% milk). Of course, I prefer the sugar version but needing a better choice for watching calories and sugar intake is a great substitution. Judge me not! LOL.… Read more »

The recipe on the Hershey cocoa can is just as easy. Just mix the dry ingredients together and store in a jar until ready to use. For each of .mix I make, I substitute 2 packs of pink sweetener instead of sugaf.

A couple of drops of vanilla extract rounds the flavor out quite a bit…add it right at the end but only a drop or to it is easy to get too much LOL

Love the recipe, love the blog! If I wanted to mix in whole powdered milk to make it easier do you know what amount I would add?

What a fabulous recipe Shelly! I have always wanted to make my own hot chocolate mix, partly because its quite expensive here and partly because it would make a great present!

Hello Synchronicity! Just got home from a long rainy drive. The first thing I did was to rip open a package of Dark Chocolate cocoa mix, dump it in a mug and turn on the Keurig for some quick hot water. Yours was the first email I opened along with my first sip of cocoa. I am looking forward to making my own mix without all the extra nasty ingredients that are often found in the instant mixes. Thank you for recipe and the book suggestion. BTW, I’ve made three batches of your marvelous oatmeal cookies. I can’t seem to… Read more »
