I saw this recipe on Pinterest and was so excited to try it. First off, homemade hot chocolate is divine! Not to mention Mexican hot chocolate! I whipped up a batch to take to my kids teachers and am already dying to make more for myself! It is quick and easy and so great to have on hand! This recipe will take the place of any instant hot chocolate that is now in my house! I altered the original recipe to fit my liking.
Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix
(about 25 servings)
3 cups non fat instant dry milk powder
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 t salt
2 t corn starch
1 t cinnamon
1/8 t cayenne pepper
In a large bowl, whisk together all the ingredients.
In batches, pulse through a food processor until smooth and well combined.
Store in a sealed container in a dry, dark place.
To make the hot chocolate, mix 1/3 cup of the mixture into a mug of hot milk or water. Serve with fresh whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon.
