LAST HOLIDAY RECIPE: MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE MIX

Standard

One batch fills 4 pint sized mason jars. I make a bunch of this to give away as extended family, co-worker, or hostess gifts, and you can decorate the jars in a festive manner.

MEXICAN HOT CHOCOLATE MIX:

3 cups nonfat dry milk powder        2 cups powdered sugar        1/3 cup brown sugar

1 – 8 oz. container of cocoa powder. (I do a couple in dark cocoa, and a couple batches of regular cocoa)

3/4 cup white chocolate chips        3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/4 tsp. salt   2 – tsps. corn starch     1 tsp cinnamon       1/2 tsp cayenne red pepper

In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients together until well mixed. In 2 cup batches, pulse in food processor until smooth.

To make hot chocolate, place 1/3 cup mixture in a mug, and add very hot milk. Top with marshmallows or whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon. YUM!
