GOURMET HOT CHOCOLATE MIX

GOURMET MUG O’ CHOCOLATE MIX
Mix and store in a n airtight container. Use 3heaping tablespoons per 6-8 ounces of boiling water.BEWARE: For chocoholics only!!
MALTED HOT CHOCOLATE
Mix 8 ounces of mini marshmallows, stir and store! Use 3 heaping tablespoons of mix to one mug of boiling water.
Recipes for just a few cups:
SUPER RICH HOT CHOCOLATE MASTER MIX
Put ingredients in a blender, or food processor. (I recommend doing half a batch at one time!) Whir it around only until it is “finely ground”. If you whir too long it will clump up in the blender. Store in an airtight container. Use heaping tablespoons per mug of boiling water.
- Cocoa-Mocha – Add 1/2 cup instant coffee to the mix.
- Orange-Cinnamon Sip – Add 1 tsp. of grated orange peel and 2 tsp. cinnamon
- Scotchy’s Cup – Decrease chocolate chips by 1 cup, and add 1 cup butterscotch chips instead!
- Peanut Butter Cup – Decrease chocolate chips as above, and add 1 cup peanut butter chips.
- Minty Hot Chocolate – Decrease chocolate chips above, and add 1 cup mint- chocolate chips.
- Rasberry-Coco-Loco – Decrease chocolate chips as above, and add 1 cup of Raspberry-chocolate chips.
- Milk Chocolate Chocolate – Decrease chocolate chips as above, and add 1 cup of Milk Chocolate chips!
- Malted Milk Chocolate – Prepare as for Milk Chocolate Chocolate, except substitute 1/2 cup of malted milk powder for 1/2 cup of powdered milk.
HOT COCOA MIX
Again, it’s as easy as stir and store! Use 3 heaping tablespoons per mug of hot water!
HOT WHITE CHOCOLATE
Whir all ingredients in blender only until finely ground!
Again, do it in two batches, and don’t over grind or it will clump up in the blender. Use 3 heaping tablespoons per mug of hot water. This is particularly satisfying with a cinnamon stick as a stirrer.
MEXICAN COCOA OLE’
Mix it up and store. When you’re ready for a little south of the border, boil 3 cups of water, add the mix, stir it up, and FIESTA! Garnish with cinnamon sticks and a dollop of whipped cream!
A few more delicious recipe ideas for Hot Chocolate Season.
- Add marshmallows as you’re heating the chocolate milk and let them totally dissolve for a thick, gooey treat. Float a few more on top.
- Still, have Halloween candy hanging around? Drop a mini bar (one without nuts) and let it melt into deliciousness.
- Cinnamon sticks are always handy this time of year. Infuse your hot chocolate with a stick or two.
- Kids like hazelnut almost as much as peanut butter. Stir in a spoonful of the chocolate-hazelnut spread.
- Try the un-chocolate hot milk. Just warm some milk and flavor with honey and cinnamon.
- Puree a half banana for each cup and stir into the hot chocolate. Garnish with a bit of whipped cream and banana chip.
- Stir in a peppermint stick for a classic, holiday flavor. Then rim the mug with crushed peppermints.
- While adults are drinking hot toddies, make hot toffees for the kids, stir some butterscotch chips into hot milk.
