Hot Cocoa Mix

Oh deliciousness! Here’s what my family got  in their stockings… Cocoa mix! This is a great hostess gift for winter parties.

4 Cups raw sugar
2 Cups fair trade cocoa powder
5 Cups non-fat powdered milk
2 tsp salt
4 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


Place everything in a large bowl, except the marshmallows. Mix thoroughly, breaking up lumps, until powders are as uniform as possible.

Funnel mix into pint sized mason jars to 2/3rds full. Top with marshmallows. Cover jars with lids, fabric, and screw top. Attach labels with instructions to mix 1 tsp with 8 oz milk or water.

  1. Cool!! It never occurred to me to make cocoa powder from scratch. Hot Cocoa, yes. But this is a great idea for traveling and gifts. I hate that nasty Swiss Miss stuff.
