I have recently learned that there is only one way to drink hot cocoa - the homemade way. I will never go back to the pouch. A co-worker recently shared her recipe and I fell in love and would like to share it with you. Don't worry this isn't a super secret family recipe that I am about to plaster all over the internet. Just one she found along the way.
I mix dark and regular cocoa for a richer chocolate taste. I also add a bit more sugar because I have a major sweet tooth. The great thing about homemade is that it is easy to adjust it to each person's own taste. Also to clarify - it is about 1/4 c. of mix to every 8 oz. of water.
I love this mix so much I keep a jar of it on the counter for quick hot cocoa fixes. I love that my guests can easily help themselves too.
