Cup of Hot Chocolate

Have you been invited to a last minute Christmas party and haven’t had time to plan for a hostess gift? Well look no further, you can whip this up in a matter of minutes and be on your way to the party.  In our home we make a big batch of this Hot Chocolate Mix every winter and drink it all season long.

 

Hot Chocolate Ingredients

This is certainly not a mix if you are looking for a skinny recipe. My philosophy is hot cocoa is meant to be rich, creamy and loaded with calories. If you’re looking for a lite version just use hot water instead of hot milk.

        Is the cocoa in this recipe, unsweetened cocoa?

        • says

          Carolyn yes it is and I like the dark chocolate version the best.

          • Johnnice says

            Can you mix this all up and put in a coffee maker for large party??

          • says

            I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. You could also make it in a crockpot and have people use a ladle to dip it out.

    Dawn, this sounds delicious and I’ve printed the recipe! I must say that your photo of the hot chocolate has me salivating right now! It’s incredible! Printing those gift tags, too!

  2. says

    I totally agree. Hot Chocolate is only good when it’s chuck full of calories. Thanks for the recipe!

    • says

      Ann thank for checking in:) I have gave up on watching my waist line so I don’t feel guilty about having this. LOL

    • says

    • says

      Kris have a great time with your family this Christmas:) I am enjoying seeing bits of them on instagram.

  4. says

    Whoa!
    First time I’ve ever seen a hot chocolate recipe this rich.
    My g’children will love this!
    I pinned the Mason jar tags to use too.
    I like that they aren’t seasonal and will look good on a counter year round.

    • says

      Kim, Yes the recipe is very rich that’s why I love it. My waist line is out of control anyway so why not. LOL

    Hello again! when I click on the other bloggers names above, it is taking me to pages that say they are unsafe. Any ideas how to view them?

    • says

      Susan, I had that happen also but only on my ipad. The sites are fine though!!

  6. says

    Sounds heavenly. And fattening! But then again, hot chocolate should be fattening!
    xo

    • says

      Claudia I agree it is fattening and I almost have a big batch of this mix finished already.

  7. Annette Tracy says

    Dawn, how much does this actually make? Sounds wonderful!

    • says

      Annette it fills a gallon zip lock bag:) Enjoy!!

  8. says

    I have questions: 1. Is powdered sugar the same as Confectioners sugar?
    2. What size boxes of the instant pudding? and 3. What type/product of cocoa do you suggest?
    Thank you! This sounds delicious and dangerous!

    • says

      Debbie, 1. Yes it is the same. 2. You can use either size I like the large size better. 3. Hershey dark chocolate is my favorite. Make sure your water or milk is very hot to melt the pudding in the mix.

  9. Cheri says

    is the creamer a powder?

  10. Dee says

    sounds absolutely yummy. Gonna make it soon

    • says

      Dee, glad you made it and came back to comment. Enjoy!!

  11. Dee says

    Not very sweet but very good and rich

    • says

      Dee, add some extra powdered sugar if you like it sweeter ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Kirsten says

    This sounds so good! How much liquid do you stir in per serving? I’m making as gifts and need to include instructions to make. Thanks so much for the recipe!

    • says

      Kirsten, it depends on how big the mug is, but a normal coffee cup would need about 8-10 oz.

  13. KAthy says

    So I made this to give away as gifts this year and boy is it good! I tried a different recipe first and it just wasn’t creamy enough. The powdered creamer and pudding mixes really push this over the top. The only suggestions that I have is I would really recommend using some salt and much more sugar.
    * I used 1 1/2 tsp of regular table salt, but I think you could even use a bit more, fine grain salt would be best.
    * I also thought that it wasn’t near sweet enough and ended up using 6 cups of powdered sugar.

    Next batch I’m going to try using some flavored creamer, perhaps hazelnut. Another thought is to use 1/4 c of instant espresso powder for a mocha flavor.

    Thanks for the great recipe though…It is a keeper.
    With the 6 cups of sugar I ended up filling about five-and-a-half 1 quart mason jars

      Kathy, your tweaks sound so yummy I will give them a try. Thanks for the update ๐Ÿ™‚
