Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix



We woke up to a light sprinkling of snow this morning, so my husband and I decided to drive in Jasper National Park (about 15 minutes from home) so he can take some photo's for his nature blog.  I think I will be making some hot chocolate for us to take in a thermos!

Happy Family Day weekend my Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan friends!  

Ingredients
- 2 oz (2 bars) semi-sweet Bakers chocolate (or your favourite semi-sweet chocolate)
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup sugar

Directions

Coarsely chop chocolate and place in a small blender (such as a magic bullet) or food processor until fine. If you don't have a small blender or food processor, you can finely grate the chocolate using a cheese grater. 

Mix chocolate with cocoa powder and sugar and place in an airtight container (I used a small mason jar).

Use 2 level tbsp mix with 1 cup of hot milk (we like almond milk). 

Recipe makes 4 servings. 


Enjoy!

  1. looks great - I would probably make the mix without the sugar, then add sweet-n-low to taste after blending the chocolate mixture with the 'milk'. (less carbs). Going to try this, though - thanks for the recipe !

    1. It's always great to mix up different ingredients - I'd be interested in hearing how your variations turned out! :)
