Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 16 ounces milk I use skim but feel free to substitute what you like!
  • Whipped cream optional
  • Ground cinnamon optional for garnish sprinkle

Instructions

To Make Hot Cocoa Mix

  • Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl.  Set aside.

To Make Hot Cocoa Beverage

  • To warm milk in the microwave, pour milk in a glass, microwave safe measuring cup. (note, you may have already measured it out this way and that's ok!) Warm on high for about one minute. (Since microwaves vary, you may need to adjust the time so it warms up to just the right temperature).
  • To warm milk on the stovetop, using a small saucepan, pour milk into the saucepan. Warm on low for 3-5 minutes, stirring often so the milk does not burn.
  • Pour warmed milk into your favorite mug.
  • Add 2 1/2 tablespoons of dry cocoa mixture to warmed milk and whisk together until blended. 
  • If desired, add whipped cream and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Enjoy!

Notes

Make Ahead Tip:
In a small bowl, double or triple all ingredients and add to bowl. Blend together with spoon. Transfer to an air-tight storage container. Label container with recipe name and date.
You might also want to add instructions for mixing up a cup of hot cocoa! Such as, "Stir dry mixture to blend any ingredients that may have settled. Add two tablespoons of mixture to one 8 oz cup of warm milk. Stir to blend."
