Have the best-ever instant—but made from scratch—hot chocolate when you keep Chocolate Mix on hand.
- Yield: 2 Servings
- Combine the milk, chocolate mix, sugar if using, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a simmer, stirring. Pour into two mugs, top with marshmallows and serve.
NOTE: Once you’ve made the basic version, try some of these variations:
Chili Chocolate: add a pinch of ground chipotle and a pinch of chili powder
Almond Chocolate: substitute unsweetened almond milk and add 1/8 teaspoon of almond extract.
Hot Minty Chocolate: add 1/4 teaspoon mint extract
Double Hot Chocolate: add 1 ounce chopped semi-sweet chocolate to the heated milk and stir until melted.
