Oh the weather… Ever since I’m back from my holiday it’s raining everyday. And it’s cold. Well it’s called fall and there is nothing wrong with that. Because fall comes with some great things like pumpkins and hot chocolate! I bought some pumpkins and they are in my window-sill. I love the look of it and I will be a little bit sad when I have to let them go. Good thing is: I have a lot of seeds now to grow my own pumpkins next year! The other thing, hot chocolate, is tasting so much better when it’s cold outside. I always wonder why. I mean, tea and coffee do taste the same with cold or warm weather in my opinion? I made a batch of hot cocoa mix that I want to share with you. This hot cocoa mix is made with milk, not with water.
Learn how to make this delicious hot cocoa after the jump. . .
What you need for hot cocoa mix
- 1/2 cup of coffee creamer
- 1 cup of Dutch processed cocoa
- 1 cup of sugar (or 1 cup powdered sugar)
- 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
- 1 table spoon of cornstarch
How to make hot cocoa mix
Put the sugar in the food processor until you’ve got powdered sugar. Put the rest of the ingredients in the food processor until you get a smooth mix. The food processor gets all the lumps out. Store the hot cocoa up to three months in a air tight container.
How to make hot cocoa out of your mix
Heat up enough milk for one mug of hot chocolate in a pan or microwave. Put two tablespoons of hot cocoa mix in the mug and mix it with just enough cold milk to dissolve the mix. Pour the hot milk over it and you’re done!
Tip: This would also be a great gift for the holidays! XO Wilma
