Spicy Hot Cocoa Mix

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by JeriBinNC

I found this on the internet somewhere years ago. I haven't made it in a while, but I remember that it was good. I'm guessing at the servings, basing it on 1/4 cup of mix per serving.

This was really really good. I made this into a spicy cocoa decaf latte and it was excellent, I look forward to making it again. For the vanilla I used the sugar free vanilla syrup from starbucks. Thanks so much for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix well in a large bowl, or run it through the blender or food processor (recommended).
  2. Test it by mixing a small amount with hot water, then adjust the cocoa, sugar, chili powder, or whatever to taste.
  3. If you can't find powdered vanilla, you could use vanilla milk mix (like chocolate milk mix), or even vanilla pudding. Just taste-test first, because the vanilla flavor won't be as concentrated in either of those as the actual powdered vanilla.
  4. Other than making hot cocoa, you can also add this to a cup of coffee for a spicy latte-type drink.
