Instructions

  • Grab a large mixing bowl and sift the confectioners' sugar into it.
  • Grab another large mixing bowl and sift the cocoa powder into it.
  • Next, combine the confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder in a bowl then add the salt. Mix well.
  • Then, sift the hot cocoa mixture again in a large bowl.
  • Store the hot cocoa mix in an air tight container. I love using mason jars for cocoa mix.
  • Be sure to shake before using, each and every time you use it. 
  • Mix with hot milk, water, or even coconut milk to make hot chocolate. Personally, I use milk then add a little drop of honey in mine.

Notes

TIPS:
Use ¼ cup dry mix to ¾ cup milk when making hot chocolate.
You can add a little honey or corn syrup to your finished hot chocolate. It's divine with a little added sweetener. 
Mini marshmallows are a must for hot chocolate!
