  1. To prepare the homemade hot chocolate mix, you’ll need a large mixing bowl, measuring cups, a whisk or fork and a bottle with a lid. Ensure everything is thoroughly clean and dry.
  2. If using granulated brown sugar, grind it to a coarse powder in the mixer jar. You can also choose to leave out the sugar, so that each cup can be sweetened as per taste – or if someone wants to add a sugar substitute, they can do so.
  3. In the mixing bowl, measure out all the ingredients. With your (dry) finger tips gently break any lumps and mix well and then do the final mixing with a whisk or a fork.
  4. To make a mug of chocolate mocha using this hot chocolate premix, add 2 heaped tablespoons of the mix in a mug. Add a cup of boiling hot water to the mug with constant stirring until the mix is dissolved. You can also make this with milk or half and half (half milk-half cream) for a more decadent drink.
Recipe Notes

Skip the instant coffee if you are making this for your kids.

Add 1/4 tsp of red chilli powder to the premix for that extra kick.
