Chocolate Chunk Cocoa Mix

Chocolate Chunk Cocoa Mix
hot chocolate
Yield: 3 cups of mix
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup sugar


  1. Wash hands with soap and water
  2. Add all the ingredients to a blender. Blend until the ingredients are well-mixed and the chips are broken into small chunks.
  3. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 months. Makes about 3 cups of mix.
  4. For one cup of cocoa: In a small saucepan, whisk ¼ cup of the cocoa mix with ¾ cup milk while bringing the milk barely to a simmer over medium-low heat.

This recipe uses less sugar and cocoa powder than many cocoa mixes.Also, it omits adding non-dairy creamer. The mini semi-sweet chocolate chips add an extra chocolaty flavor, sweetness, and a slight creaminess from the fat content of the chips. Adding the cocoa to heated milk rather than using non-fat dry milk powder makes the taste more similar to cocoa made from scratch.
