Hot Chocolate Mix

 

 

There are a lot of recipes for homemade hot chocolate mix, but most contain either dried milk or powdered creamer. If you don’t typically dissolve these powders in water and drink them, why would they be acceptable in your hot chocolate? Powdered milk is fine for many things, but most people find the flavor not very palatable. When you want a rich, deep chocolaty flavor, you need to use quality chocolate and fresh milk. Of course, you could always make a cup of powdered milk and add the chocolate mix to it, but why would you?

 

Trust me, this hot chocolate mix will put any of those powdered mixes to shame. This is the way hot chocolate is supposed to taste, warm, rich, and oh so chocolaty.

  2. To the sugar mixture, add the semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips. Pulse in 10 second intervals until until the chocolate is finely ground and combined with the vanilla sugar. Be careful to not overwork, you don't want to melt the chocolate.
