The following hot cocoa mix is quick to make and includes real food ingredients.
I chose to use coconut sugar or sucanat as the sweetener because both are less processed than white or brown sugar and still contain nutrients.
Mix cocoa powder and sucanat or coconut sugar in a bowl. Pour into a clean jar and label.
The basic formula of 1 part cocoa powder to 2 parts sucanat or coconut sugar can be used to make more or less of this hot cocoa mix.
For example: make a tiny batch by using a few tablespoons of cocoa powder and twice as many tablespoons of sugar, or make a larger batch by mixing 3 cups cocoa powder with 6 cups sugar.
Warm 1 cup of milk over low heat and whisk in 2 tablespoons to 1 cup milk
