I tend to be the kind of person who doesn’t allow excuses to get in my way as far as baking or making anything. That doesn’t meant that I don’t have faults in allowing excuses to prevent me from doing things – as we all do. But when it comes to the kitchen, when it comes to a pregnant woman wanting something she doesn’t have, I make no excuses. For example, today was a very fall-like day and as I was pureeing a Pumpkin I really wanted some Hot Chocolate to sip on. It just seemed to fit. But, I don’t have hot chocolate mix. So, I made my own! No excuses here!
Come to find out, hot chocolate mix really only has 3 ingredients in it. Unless you want to get fancy. But, I’m not one to get fancy when I just want a mug of hot cocoa.
What You Will Need:
2 C Dry Milk
1 C Powdered sugar (you can get away with regular sugar)
1/2 – 1 C Baking Cocoa (I did 1/2 C but think next time I’ll do 1 C. I really like my chocolate)
A storage jar
Mix everything in a bowl. And put in the storage jar.
Scoop about 3 Tablespoons of cocoa mix into a mug and pour hot water over it. Pretty simple. And pretty darn tasty!
*If you don’t have Dry Milk, you could experiment by just using the other two ingredients and just heating up some regular milk to mix it in. What do you think?
