Hot Chocolate Mix

Hot Chocolate Mix

  • 2 ½ c. powdered milk
  • 2 1/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 c. cocoa~~the darker the better~~
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • dash cayenne pepper~~optional~~

Sift all but the milk into a large container.  Add powdered milk.   Shake to combine. Can be easily doubled, tripled. We generally quadruple it.

To make a 12 oz. mug, use a heaping 1/3 c. and hot water.

Marshmallows are also helpful in the drinking of said product.

  1. I’ll be whipping this up sometime soon. The Penzey’s hot chocolate has cinnamon in their mix….barely a hint. Just FYI b/c I know you like to know these things. 🙂

  2. Printing this off today for two reasons:
    1. I don’t know where my copy is from last year.
    2. Licking the picture of the hot chocolate earlier didn’t help any.

    I don’t think the dash cayenne pepper should be optional. 😀

  3. I am getting ready to make this. I don’t have dark chocolate. 😦 Oh well, it will still be tastey. I have a question. What is salk? LOL

    It doesn’t have to be dark chocolate…but when I purchase cocoa in bulk, I get the darker stuff.

    Salk is a special kind of typo that only I am allowed to type.

  4. I made the mix last night and had some on the way to church. I had to share it with the daughters. 😦 I made each of them a cup when we got home and they wouldn’t share. 😦

    Anyhoo, I like it better with the dark chocolate. 😀

    So, make you some more.

  5. Well, I have to admit that I’ve never heard of adding the cayenne pepper to hot chocolate. So, since noone else is asking, I’ll be brave. 😆 Why, oh, why the pepper? :mrgreen:

    Have a super Saturday! 🙂

    The pepper enhances the flavor of the chocolate. You don’t want much. Just a pinch for the entire recipe. You don’t want your drinkers to breath fire. It is optional, and truthfully, I generally opt out.
