Country Living Hot Chocolate Mix

Here's what Country Living says,"Our hot-chocolate mix, made with the finest cocoa and chocolate, is a cut above most store-bought varieties. Fill jars with the mix, cover the lids with a festive swath of fabric, and include peppermint "stirring" sticks for added flavor and color. Try adding to a basket with mugs, spoons, marshmallows, whipped cream and maybe a good movie!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor fitted with a metal blade and process just until mixture is powdery -- about 30 seconds. Be careful not to overprocess.
  2. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
  3. To make hot chocolate, combine 1 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of the mix in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until chocolate is incorporated and mixture is warmed through.
  4. Serve immediately.

I made this up and put two tablespoon on saran wrap and tied it up with a red or green ribbon and typed the instructions where it says to put the cup of milk in the saucepan and stir. This was very good. I gave the two tablespoon with a cup and a candy cane in the cup for christmas gifts. Thank you for sharing this because it was a nice gift to give. Chef #220151

Very good, and different. Made to give as a gift, but DS and I had a cup also. We both really liked it and that it was really chocolately. Will be making another batch for us to keep! Made for PRMR.

Wow, one of the best hot chocolate mixes I have ever made. It has a perfect balance of spicy, chocolatey and sweet. Love that it doesnt call for powdered milk. I didnt use a food processor so simply grated the chocolate which worked out very well. Used a non-dairy milk (oat) to make this and it was soooo good!
THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this treat with us, Sharon! I will definitely make this again.
