Because sometimes while you enjoy the childlike wonder of winter, you just want your hot chocolate to be a little more grown up.
- 3/4 cups dark cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup nondairy creamer
- 3/4 cup powdered milk
- 1 pound powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Place mix ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir well. Although not needed, it is a good idea to put mix through a sifter to remove lumps.
To use, place 1/2 cup of cocoa mix in a large cup. Add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of boiling hot water (to your liking). Stir until dissolved.
My favorite way to heat water is now my flip-top electric teapot. My favorite way to enjoy hot chocolate is with homemade flavored whoop cream on top… or maybe with a few high-quality chocolate pieces stirred in. Move over, marshmallows.
