Easy Instant Hot Chocolate Mix

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

Not a fancy beverage, this is just a basic hot chocolate to enjoy anytime without a hassle or much clean-up. It is also good used to flavor coffee; add a tablespoon of the mix to a cup of hot coffee for a mocha effect.


  1. Combine all ingredients, mixing well. Store in an airtight container.
  2. To make hot chocolate: For each serving, place 1/3 cup of the mix in a mug or thick glass. Add 1 cup boiling water and stir well.

This mix is just okay for me. I don't always like the super sweet mixes, but this one was not sweet enough. Personally, I want to rate this 3 stars on taste alone, but will give 4 because it's a recipe that does not include some sort of instant drink mix. Thank you for that!

Tagged for Comfort Cafe 2009. This is a perfect mix to have o9n hand especially here in the snow belt. Made a batch the other night to give to the kids after they drove here in an ice storm. They liked it especially with the marshmallows on top. ( no alcohol added as they were supposed to drive back but ended up staying here for safety) I did cut it to 8 servings. I also added in powdered coffee creamer (1/4 c for 8 servings) to make it creamier. YUMMMMMY
