The BEST Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
Serves: makes 5½ cups dry mix
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa (Dutch-process is best!)
  • 2½ cups powdered milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
For serving:
  • KahlĂșa
  • marshmallows
To make the mix:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk thoroughly to combine. You may also use a food processor if your powdered milk granules are too large.
  2. Pour into a large airtight container and store in a cool, dry place.
To make a single serving:
  1. Fill your mug halfway with hot cocoa mix, add water or milk, and enjoy!
  2. If desired, add 1 ounce KahlĂșa and top with marshmallows
