Viewer discretion advised...After reading this post you will be tempted to mix up a batch of this deliciously rich and chocolaty hot cocoa mix. Your children will slurp down a mug of it and NEVER be able to drink ANY other store bought packet or keurig k-cup on he market EVER again. I promise.
This is now our third year making our own hot cocoa mix. Last year, I linked up the original recipe from Alton Brown on the Food Network. After a few inquiries, I have decided to repost my adaptation! We love to give this mix as a gift to friends and teachers. It looks super festive in a mason jar topped with some holiday fabric. See the post HERE to view pictures of our cocoa all dressed up!
It is also absolutely fabulous with a couple splashes of Baileys. Please try!!!
Prep Ahead Plan: I quadruple this recipe and store it in giant mason jars.
