All-Natural Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix via Clean Mama

This recipe for homemade hot chocolate is great for gifting or just for keeping in your cupboard for cold days. It will store for a few months in a cool dark place and in a covered container.

  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa – I used double dutch process cocoa, but regular cocoa will work just as well
  • 3 teaspoons sea salt

Combine ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine with a wire whisk. Transfer to a 4 cup canning jar or other smaller containers for gifting.

To mix up as hot chocolate, simply add 2 tablespoons of the mix to one cup of hot milk (any type will work, but whole milk will give you the richest and smoothest hot chocolate)  If you are a non-cow’s milk family you could experiment with soy and almond milk as well.
