Hot chocolate mix is easy to make and delicious!


This is such a simple recipe for hot chocolate mix.  I keep it for months with no problems.  You can double or triple the recipe. I usually double this recipe and keep in a pint jar.  It is wonderful when you want something warm in cold weather and makes a great gift.   Most children love hot chocolate.  Just add some marshmallows or whipped cream on top for a quick treat.

Hot chocolate mix makes a great gift for any occasion.

6 tablespoons white granulated sugar

4 tablespoons 100% cocoa

1/4 teaspoon table salt

Whisk the 3 ingredients together and store in an airtight jar or container.  Heat 1 cup milk in the microwave and add 1 tablespoon of the hot chocolate mix and stir.  This recipe for mix makes 10 cups of hot chocolate.  Enjoy!

  1. Everyone in my family loves Hot Chocolate. But need to make it sugar free. Would you know how much Splenda to put in it . Same as sugar or less.

    • The Southern Lady says:

      It usually says on the bag the packages of splenda come in how much would be the same as sugar. Otherwise, I would just use the same amount of splenda as sugar, Clara.
