Creamy, hot and chocolaty! This hot cocoa mix is what will get us through our long winter. This has been a family recipe since we were kids and now and it’s a winter-time staple.
Growing up, we would come tromping into the house after a big day of sledding. Pull off our sopping wet mittens and snow balled hats as mom would plop a few little marshmallows into our homemade hot cocoa.
There was nothing better! It was creamy, warm and so so chocolaty! The only thing better was the cookies she was about to pull out of the oven. I would be the first one to stand by the open oven door, sipping my cocoa and warming up.
Mom always made this recipe big enough to fill an ice cream bucket. It would last us just about the entire winter! This recipe can make enough to have and share!

The best part of the recipe is that there are 4 ingredients. I love knowing what’s in my hot cocoa. This recipe has been in my recipe box for quite some time now and it has easily become a winter-time staple with our four kids, too.
We love gifting this simple to make cocoa mix with everyone and anyone. I just add a label to one of these cute little jars, dress it up with a ribbon and a tag of appreciation and away we go!
By adding 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper and 1/8 tsp of nutmeg! That will give it a little kick!
I love to add this mixture to our crockpot for a large gathering. It’s a way to ensure a nice consistent temperature that I know isn’t going to burn little mouths.
