DIY Hot Cocoa Mix

  • Author: Julie Hasson


This cocoa mix is my favorite, and one that I gift every year!



Small Batch:
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Pinch of sea salt

Large Batch:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup Dutch process cocoa powder
1/4 cup cornstarch
Pinch of sea salt

Optional ingredients: Chocolate chips, a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg, mini vegan marshmallows, etc…


Whisk all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. If your cocoa powder has some lumps, you may need to sift it first before mixing it with the other ingredients. 

Package up in jars, crocks, or cello bags.

To Make A Cup Of Cocoa: heat a mug of your favorite milk and stir in 2 tablespoons (or more or less to taste) of hot cocoa mix. Stir until smooth and serve.
