Best Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Best Homemade Hot Chocolate Recipe

This time of year has me reaching for my slippers, a cozy sweater and a hot mug of deliciousness. 

Now for some of you that may mean a steaming cup of coffee, but not for this gal. I love the flavour of coffee, but I'm not really a fan of coffee itself. Please don't hate me! 

I'm a mocha or latte kinda girl. Hot milk with chocolate and a shot of espresso...usually decaf...are my cup of tea...ahem...coffee.

Yes, yes I know plain coffee has less sugar than a flavoured latte, BUT considering I have one less than once every two weeks, I figure it's all good.

At home I don't bother to make myself lattes, but with how cold it is outside, it's tempting! I start to think about it and then realize I would have to buy some coffee and a machine to brew it and that just seems like way too much effort ;)

Instead, my solution has always been hot chocolate. I've been known to cave this time of year and buy hot chocolate mix on occasion, but when I do, I try not to think about the ingredients. 

That is until now. Now I have a solution to my hot, creamy, delicious drink dilemma without having to buy a machine and at the same time get my chocolate fix. Win win!! 

This hot cocoa mix makes a great gift in a jar idea and is handy to have available when a warm decadent drink is needed :)

For all you hot chocolate and mocha fans, you're welcome ;)
