This homemade hot cocoa mix will have you thinking twice before buying store-bought mixes with their weird ingredients!
Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 10-12
  • 100g dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids
  • ⅔ cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup powdered coconut milk, powdered milk, or malted milk powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour
  1. Cut the chocolate into chunks and add to the bowl of a food processor. Process until very finely ground, like the texture of almond meal. Add the rest of the ingredients to the ground chocolate and process until thoroughly combined.
  2. If you don't have a food processor, finely grate the chocolate and stir the ingredients together by hand.
  3. Transfer the mixture to an airtight container.
  4. To make one serving of hot cocoa, add 2 rounded tablespoons of the hot cocoa mixture to 1 cup of milk in a small saucepan and warm gently over low heat, stirring with a whisk occasionally, until steaming. Do not simmer or boil. Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!
For vegans, use a suitable chocolate bar and your preferred non-dairy milk.
