So I was all ready to take a picture of some of my homemade hot chocolate outside in the fresh new fallen snow, but alas, before I could get around to it, all luscious 12 inches melted overnight!! Crazy weather my friends, skiing out my door one day and walking in mud puddles the next!!!
That’s why we must seize every moment or before we know it, it melts away!!
This is an easy storable hot chocolate mix with just a few ingredients. My girls, who happen to be my biggest food critics, love this mix. I hardly ever use sugar a.k.a. white death, but I figure the kids will burn the sugar right off as they are trying to keep warm in the up and coming frigid months, which we happen to have a lot of in Montana!
Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
3/4 Cup Chopped Chocolate, bittersweet, semisweet, milk whatever your fancy, (milk chocolate will make it sweeter)
2/3 Cup Good Quality Cocoa Powder
3/4 Cup Organic Powdered Sugar
1 Cup Dry Coconut milk or Regular Dry milk (or omit this if you plan on using milk instead of water as your liquid)
1 Pinch of salt
Place the chocolate into a food processor and blend until it is a fine grainy texture.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend some more until it makes a nice fine powder.
Brew up some hot water or milk of your choice and add a tablespoon or two of the mix and stir…..stir some more so the chocolate melts and Enjoy!
