Homemade Hot Chocolate

Recipe photo courtesy of Sang An

Hot-chocolate mix is a wintertime staple. A homemade version is delicious and natural -- containing only cocoa, sugar, and salt -- and especially economical compared with store-bought mixes.

    For once in my life I followed the powder directions to the "T"! However the only change I did make was using water instead of milk, since I am Lactose Intolerant. I would also recommend using coffee for a mocha, added the mix to my coffee this morning and it made a very good Mocha. I did find the mixture a little sweet for me personally but the chocolate flavor is on point! My fiance did say that it needed to be sweeter but that just shows personal taste differences. I am actually giving this mix away as Christmas gifts this year to my Niece's, Nephew, and as a part of the white elephant gift at the grandparents house. Yes I will be printing the recipe from the website so that Martha gets all the credit.

    My son and I wanted hot chocolate but only had one packet left. I went on the internet to find a homemade recipe and this one popped up. Disaster averted! It's delicious! Better than store-bought, and it mixes in better with milk because it doesn't have all the fake ingredients. This also has to be much cheaper, as it makes quite a bit. I add a few peppermint Hershey kisses to the mug. My favorite winter treat.

    I was looking to make a small batch, so I just changed the measurements from cups to tablespoons. 3T sugar, 2T cocoa and a pinch of salt. I used one T per mug's worth of milk. It was awesome!

    Very salty. I thought it lacked the chocolate taste. I used powdered sugar. So I added more chocolate and sugar to balance it out. Not impressed at all.

      It was wonderful. To the comment of the too salty, powder sugar is a bit different than regular sugar. The anti caking agent in it gives it an off flavor and is not as sweet. Make sure to use granulated sugar and it will taste fine.
