Best-Ever Hot Cocoa Mix

Best-Ever Hot Cocoa Mix

 I remember coming in from a long day of building snow forts to my mother’s smile and warm cup of hot chocolate with that cover of marshmallow “Fluff” that stuck to your nose. We are on our third or fourth straight day of waking up to zero or subzero temps although they say we may get above the teens this afternoon, not counting the wind chill that is. Yesterday Deb and Nicole decided that a cup would be just the right thing. So Nicole and I grabbed our coats and braved the elements. I just like the walking and the company part.  This morning waiting for me in email a message from Cook’s Country this recipe sounds perfect for home or office.

February/March 2007

Why this recipe works: We wanted a recipe for hot cocoa that was creamy, rich, and big on chocolate flavor. Nonfat dry milk lent our Hot Cocoa Mix recipe a sweet dairy flavor, especially when we reconstituted the mix with hot milk instead of hot water. Confectioners’ sugar worked best in our recipe because it dissolved quickly, and cornstarch helped thicken the hot cocoa. And for complex chocolate flavor and a soft, creamy texture, we used a combination of white chocolate and cocoa powder.
