Dark Hot Chocolate Mix

Becca here with an amazing dark hot chocolate mix!  I've tried LOTS of different kinds of hot chocolate before, both premade from the store, and homemade.  And while several of them were good, I prefer a dark chocolate flavor, and find many of them too milky and/or sugary sweet for my preference.  I was most recently really disappointed by the Starbucks Dark Hot Chocolate mix that was super, super expensive at my local grocery store, and not good at all.  So, after googling recipes that were different than what we'd tried before, my kids & I tried this one last week and declared it a winner!  It's definitely my favorite hot chocolate that I've tried so far!  It is a nice blend of sweet and creamy, but with the deep dark chocolate flavor as well.  Even better, the recipe uses ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry right now!  I hope you'll try it soon.  And be sure & let us know how you like it!

Dark Hot Chocolate Mix

1 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder (I use Hershey's Special Dark)
1 cup sugar
1 cup powdered milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients in an airtight container.  If it's a really tight seal, let the kids shake it well to combine (my recommendation!); otherwise, stir well to combine.

To make hot chocolate, add 3 Tablespoons to 8-10 ounces of hot water (or 2 Tablespoons to 6 ounces for a kid-sized serving is what we do).  Enjoy!
