Winter is not over yet! If you live in the Midwestern United States, you will know that the weather can go from super warm one day and freezing temperatures the next! This means it is not too late to warm up with a nice warm cup of hot chocolate. If you love dark chocolate, then you will enjoy this mix. I guess you could call me a hot chocolate freak, because I drink a cup almost every day. This is the reason why I wanted something a little more healthy than the average hot chocolate mix from the store. The hot chocolate mix I put together is full of antioxidants and is sweetened with stevia, but any sweetener will do.
Stevia Sweetened Hot Chocolate Mix
Unsweetened cocoaI use Hershey's
Powdered steviaxylitol, or granulated sugar
In a mason jar or container with a lid measure 2 parts cocoa to 1 part sweetener (I used stevia).
for a sweeter mix, combine equal parts cocoa and sweetener. Keep in mind that some sweeteners and sugar are not as sweet as others. For example, stevia is sweeter than sugar, so you will need less.
Place the lid on the container or mason jar and shake to combine.
, some mix may fall to the bottom of your mug if you add too much. To avoid this try mixing in milk powder or using hot milk instead of water.
