Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix {Dairy-Free}



Steaming cup of chocolate goodness! Hot cocoa is a favorite treat of mine. It is the perfect way to warm up after playing in the snow. You never know what kind of cocoa we will be drinking at my house. Some days it will be a Mexican inspired cocoa, another day it will be peppermint, for a special treat raspberry but normally we just have it plain, which is delightful in its own right.

There are days when I want to cut out a few of the steps of making hot cocoa. Commercial mixes, even organic ones are out of the question. Instead I came of with my own mix. It has just three ingredients, sucanat, cocoa and chocolate chips. It takes no more than ten minutes to whip up a batch of it. It also makes the perfect Christmas or hostess gift!
