light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons
- Mix well in a large bowl, or run it through the blender or food processor (recommended).
- Test it by mixing a small amount with hot water, then adjust the cocoa, sugar, chili powder, or whatever to taste.
- 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.
- Other than making hot cocoa, you can also add this to a cup of coffee for a spicy latte-type drink.
