We leave the sugar out of this dry mix so that you can control the type and quantity of sweeteners (if any) that are added to this popular winter drink. It’s a game changer!
Make up about 1 cup of heated water. I like to use our kettle, but you could also use a small saucepan on your stove over medium heat.
To the hot water add about 1.5 – 2 Tablespoons of the hot cocoa mix. Then add about 1 tablespoon of your sweetener to start with. See if you need it more or less sweet for your liking. Also add a pinch of salt.
This mix dissolves pretty well just by whisk or stirring your cup. At this point you could add in a splash of cream or milk, vanilla extract, or other fun natural flavors.
