Giftable Hot Cocoa Mix

When it comes to holiday season, the goal of many (including us) is to curl up under a blanket with hot cocoa and The Grinch. Unfortunately, most instant hot cocoa mixes don't get that frothy, creamy texture that we know and love... until now! This recipe has the perfect amount of sweet chocolate flavor coupled with a rich texture, and doubles as the perfect holiday gift. Plus, it's inexpensive to put together for co-workers, family friends and anyone else you want to send some holiday cheer!

Here's how it's done:


  • 1 cup powdered milk 
  • Dash of sea salt 
  • 1 cup cacao powder (not cocoa!) 
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar 
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips 
  • Marshmallows, to top


  1. Layer ingredients in a mason jar.
  2. Write instructions: 1/4 cup mix with 1 cup boiling water (use more mix or additional milk instead of water for a richer drink).
