A mug of hot cocoa can help thaw frigid kids post-sledding and comfort chilly kids after a cold walk home from school.
Fro scratch cocoa? Even better. And it’s simple to make.
How to make homemade hot cocoa mix
You only need a few simple ingredients:
- Dry milk powder
- Powdered sugar
Whisk the ingredients together in a medium bowl.
Then portion into jars or other airtight containers (a funnel helps keep things neat).
Store in your pantry so you’re ready for cold-nose-and-feet season. Or you can pack up the cocoa mix as holiday gifts (give a jar with a few of my Easy Homemade Marshmallows for an extra-special treat).
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup cocoa, Dutch-process preferred, though I used regular
- 2 1/2 cups powdered milk
- 1 t. salt
- 2 t. cornstarch
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and incorporate evenly.
- Place 1-2 heaping tablespoons of mix (more or less to taste) into a mug with 8 ounces hot milk. Stir well to combine.
