Homemade White Hot Chocolate Mix


     I hope you guys are enjoying hot chocolate week as much as I am.  Drinking a nice warm mug of hot chocolate is one of my favorite ways to hide from old man winter.  He and I don't get along. We were kind of friends when I was a kid, but we are no longer chums.  In fact, I would prefer that we weren't even acquaintances.  But alas, I live in the Midwest and as long as that is the case I will have to deal with him.  Oh well, at least that means hot chocolate.


     MiMi made a big pot of white hot chocolate for Christmas last year and it was AMAZING!  So, when we got together to make hot chocolate mixes for Christmas gifts this year, we knew there had to be some white hot chocolate mix too!  This is a warm creamy mug of yum!  You can dress it up with cinnamon, marshmallows or last year MiMi put some Andes peppermint chips and fresh whipped cream on there and it was to die for!  I mean really, that is the stuff dreams are made of right there!



    This is another quick and easy recipe to make.  Just like the hot chocolate mix, all it takes is a few minutes in the food processor and you are ready to go.  The hardest part is deciding which one to enjoy!


Homemade White Chocolate Mix

Ingredients:

1 1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 cups powdered milk

  1. Chop chocolate in the food processor until small chunks.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and process until powdery and well mixed.
To serve:

  1. Add 4-5 T of hot chocolate mix into 8 oz boiling water.  Stir until dissolved and enjoy!

    2. I really like them both. I probably like the white chocolate one a bit more because it is different.

  6. This is how Chloe enjoyed her first taste of the hot chocolate mix we sent back to school with her. She plugged in her Christmas tree, climbed in bed and thoroughly enjoyed her warm hug-I mean hot chocolate. IMG_2844.JPG

  13. Thanks for this recipe.Just found some milk bottles with red lids today, and thought they'd be great to fill with a white hot chocolate mix as xmas gifts....can the amount of both sugars be reduced without compromising the recipe?

    1. I can't see why not. In fact, I might give that a try myself next time I make a batch. That will be so cute in milk bottles with red lids. How fun!
