Hot Cocoa Mix

This mix is perfect for when you only want to make a mug or two of cocoa, and it also makes a great gift! I still prefer my original cocoa recipe for when I want to make more servings at once, but both versions are great! Here are the ingredients you will need to make the mix:

You will need vanilla powder for this recipe. I really like this one from Cook’s Vanilla:

Add all of the ingredients to a small blender jar, and make sure the lid is on tight:

Blend until you have a fine powder:

Transfer to an airtight container. The mix fits perfectly into a pint size mason jar:

Add a bow if you are giving the cocoa mix as a gift!

Add 43 g (about 3 TBS) of the cocoa mix to a mug. Heat 270 g (1 1/8 c) of an original flavor plant milk. I use Silk Soymilk.

Add about a quarter cup of the hot milk and mix well:

Be sure that all of the mix has blended in.

Chef’s Tip: If you wait five minutes before adding the rest of the hot milk, your cocoa will have a much richer and more polished flavor. This is because the cocoa will bloom in the hot milk and will release trapped flavor particles.

Stir in the rest of the hot milk:

Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • Chef's Tip: If you wait five minutes after adding the first 1/4 cup of hot milk, your cocoa will have a much richer and more polished flavor. This is because the cocoa will bloom in the hot milk and will release trapped flavor particles.
