When the weather starts to turn cooler, I know that it’s time to start digging out my drink mix recipes. We love this Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe because it is so warming on a chilly day. I also love that I can make it in large batches (easily) with very few ingredients. It also presents itself quite lovely, especially if you can find unique containers or pretty jars to store it in, so it makes for a wonderful gift as well!
Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground Cinnamon
- ¼ cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder
- 2 1/3 cups Powdered Milk
In a medium bowl, mix all dry ingredients together until well blended. Pour into a jar or another air tight container until ready to use. To use, add one heaping tablespoonful to one mug or warm or hot water. Add in marshmallows, chocolate syrup, or more cinnamon or a cinnamon stick for an additional treat. Enjoy:
This mix also makes a great gift. Place in a pretty jar and you have a lovely and delicious gift to share!
You could also pair this Mexican Hot Chocolate mix with a cute mug, like this darling Porcelain Chocolate Owl 12 Oz Coffee Mug.
To attach a note, I love (love!) these Martha Stewart Crafts Kraft Tags which you can find on Amazon for $2.99 (dozen).
