Hot Cocoa Mix
2 c confectioner sugar
1 c cocoa (dutch processed)
2 c powdered milk
1 tsp salt
2 t cornstarch
Mix well and be ready for it to fly all over, I used a large bowl and wire whisk.
I layered it in these jars which I found at Home Goods and some at Sur La Table--2 very favorite stores!
To make a cup the recipe says 1/3 of the cup with mix then mix in hot water to fill mug.
I mixed in a small amount of water with my frother to blend it well then poured in the water to fill the mug.
This is a nice mix not overly sweet which I like. If you like a little more zip you can add some cayenne to the mix which Alton Brown had done but was afraid to add that since I was giving it to other people. Which by the way they have all liked it, so if you try it let me know what you think.
|I layered the marshmallows and mini choco chips |
for looks but you should mix them in when ready to use.
|My best Hot Chocolate ever was in 2004 in Perugia, Italy at Caffe Di Perugia. It was like drinking the best melted chocolate you could imagine. I have never been able to recreate it--probably a good thing.|
