Instant Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

5 from 3 reviews

Homemade hot chocolate is the perfect treat for a winter night! Make it in single servings or a big batch to give as gifts. Better than Alton Brown’s hot chocolate, you’ll love this recipe. Pair it with candy cane cookies and you’ve got Christmas in your lap.


  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Pour all dry ingredients into an empty glass jar, seal and shake well to thoroughly incorporate all ingredients.
  2. Scoop 2 tablespoons of the hot cocoa mix into a mug. Set aside.
  3. Warm milk in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Once the milk is warm, add to the mug and stir well.


If sharing mix as a gift, enclose a note with the following instructions: “Scoop two heaping tablespoons of hot cocoa mix into a mug and fill with one cup of very warm milk. Stir and enjoy!”
