Homemade Hot Chocolate is a classic winter drink. It’s so warm and comforting as the days continue to get shorter and shorter and the nights longer and longer. It is comforting to drink as we watch the snowfall outside and as the fireplace continues to warm us inside.
I love to make my own hot chocolate because I love how much better it tastes than packet hot chocolate. It is rich and not too sweet.
This recipe uses only 3 ingredients, including real sugar. A lot of recipes for hot chocolate mix uses milk powder and powdered sugar. But I really wanted to only use organic and whole ingredients that I normally have on hand for this recipe.

Cocoa powder is the powder version of cocoa beans. It has a rich chocolate taste that is not too overwhelming. I’m not a huge chocolate fan so it’s perfect for my taste! You will want to use a good quality powder, I’ll link the one I love!
I used 1 cup of cocoa powder and ½ cup of granulated sugar, and as a result, this hot chocolate mix is not super sweet, which is why I love it. However, if you prefer a sweeter drink, I suggest you use a ¼ cup more sugar than the recipe calls for!
Every sweet drink needs a little salt to help balance it out!
