White chocolate is the ingredient that provides a soft, creamy texture to this hot cocoa mix that's rich and chocolaty...and ready in less than five minutes. Recipe by Jeremy Sauer.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine ingredients in large bowl.
  2. Working in two batches, pulse ingredients in food processor until chocolate is finely ground.
  3. Store in airtight container for up to 3 months.
  4. Too make hot cocoa, stir 1/3 cup of the mix into 1 cup of hot (not boiling) milk.
  5. Top with whipped cream or mini marshmallows and a little chocolate powder. I sometimes use cinnamon or nutmeg powder, instead. A little brandy and a crackling fire make for a real treat!

I was JUST about to post this amazing recipe that I saw this morning on the website and VOILA! Here it is. Here's what is said on the website: "Best-Ever Hot Cocoa Mix - Forget about the watery hot cocoa with dehydrated marshmallows you sipped as a kid--our instant hot cocoa recipe is creamy, rich, and big on chocolate flavor. Test Kitchen Discoveries - Nonfat dry milk adds a sweet dairy flavor to the cocoa, especially if you reconstitute the mix with hot milk instead of hot water. Confectioners sugar works best in this recipe--it dissolves quickly and the cornstarch (an ingredient manufacturers add to the sugar to prevent clumping) helps thicken the cocoa. White chocolate provided our cocoa with a soft, creamy texture and pushes the chocolate flavor to new heights." Thanks for posting. :-)

I used coffee creamer and dark chocolate cocoa powder...I was afraid it would be too bitter, so I added a little extra sugar, which was not necessary. It was really sweet, which was totally fine with my 7 yr old. I made with water, because that's how he likes it. This is a keeper!

This is fabulous! My family absolutely loves it. Beats that store bought stuff to pieces! I really love the addition of the white chocolate chips. A very rich, smooth and chocolatey hot chocolate. Thank you! <br/><br/>Cathy
