DIY Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe

Even when it’s not cold outside my son and husband drink plenty of hot chocolate. Every time I’d pick up a canister or box of hot chocolate mix, I’d tell myself, you need to make your own. Making your own hot chocolate mix is easy and a lot less expensive than the prepackaged versions. Not to mention, when you control the ingredients, it’s easier to make a mix that meets your families needs.

I used to make my own hot chocolate mix when the kids were younger, so off to Pinterest I went to find a similar recipe to share. I am participating with several other bloggers as part of the  Pinterest Remakes group. Each blogger will remake a pin found on Pinterest to and turn it into their own. Be sure you look at the list of posts at the bottom of this page.

 

DIY Hot Chocolate Mix

DIY Hot Chocolate Mix

This is an easy recipe and you can have a large quantity of hot chocolate mix ready to serve in less than five minutes. I usually make a triple batch of this recipe, store it in a large airtight container and just refill the mason jar as needed. We were out most of today shoveling snow, so the hot chocolate mix took a beating and I already need to make a new batch to have on hand for next week.

Unsweetened cocoa, powdered milk and 10x sugar is all you need to make this sweet treat. Other recipes, recommend a bit of salt, but I don’t think that is necessary and skip that ingredient. You can also use granulated sugar in place of the confectioner’s sugar, but it doesn’t dissolve as smoothly when you prepare the hot chocolate.
DIY Hot Chocolate Mix Ingredients

All all of the ingredients to a quart size mason jar and shake well. Don’t forget to put the lid on BEFORE you start shaking. You could also pour all of the ingredients into a large bowl and stir with large spoon until well mixed. If you want to double or triple the recipe, mix well and store in an airtight container.

Add two to three heaping tablespoons to a large mug and add eight ounces hot water. Stir well and enjoy!

DIY Hot Chocolate Mix Tablespoon

Feel free to add marshmallows or whipped topping to your prepared cup of hot chocolate. My husband uses hot chocolate mix and adds it to his coffee to drink hot or cold. It gives the coffee a rich mocha flavor and even this non-coffee drinker enjoys the taste.

Do you make any of your own mixes? How about hot chocolate mix, is that something your family would enjoy?

    This would be a great gift idea too. Plus a nice basic recipe, you could easily add in things like chocolate chips, crushed peppermint, etc to make flavored hot chocolates.

    We spend so much money on hot chocolate that it would be a shame not to try this out! I bet it’s even more delicious than pre-made mixes too. These pinterest remakes have been so much fun to check out. 🙂

      Oh no!! Not 10 cups of sugar, 10X sugar is another name for confectioner’s sugar or powdered sugar. 10 cups would be horrible. 1 cups of powdered sugar is all you need. Thanks for stopping by!
