I’ve recently seen a ton of recipes for homemade hot cocoa mix and thought that it was a fabulous idea, especially since I just got a new recipe for homemade marshmallows. I found several recipes using sugar and powdered cocoa but that didn’t sound all that appealing to me. I finally saw one recipe that had actual chocolate pieces chopped up into it.
I chopped the chocolate with one of my Henckel knives then put it into my brand new Food Network food processor to grind it to a fine powder. It worked like a charm. Frank and I each had a cup of hot cocoa, made with milk, right after I made it. The hot cocoa is rich, creamy, and definitely chocolaty. It’s much better then the powdered stuff I buy at the market.
4 oz. dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 cups Dutch process cocoa
1. Chop the chocolates into small pieces. Add to the food processor and pulse at 5 second intervals until it turns into a powder.
2. Pour the sugar into a large freezer bag. Add in the chocolates as well as the cocoa. Seal the bag and shake to mix.
3. Add 2 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix to 12 oz (1 ½ cups) hot milk. Stir well and enjoy!
**Hot cocoa mix stays fresh for 6 months if kept in an airtight container.**
I love the idea of a hot chocolate that has so few ingredients. Sounds wonderful. Thanks for linking up with "your recipe, my kitchen!"
My family is addicted to hot chocolate on these cold winter days. Yum. Happy New Year!! [email protected]Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters
This looks great! Finally a recipe for cocoa mix that doesn't call for "powdered non-dairy creamer"- ick!
Can't wait to try this.
