A hot drink on a cold night warms the insides like medicine for the soul. Hot chocolate is the perfect compliment with Christmas treats for a party. The drink may be kept warm in a crock pot, carafe, or mixed as needed. Christmas gifts from the kitchen are offered from the heart and so appreciated by the receiver. This dry ingredient mix makes a perfect Christmas gift.

Ingredients:

  • 1¾ cup of Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Trade Sugar (or other bone char free organic pure cane sugar)
  • 2 cups Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Vanilla Bean
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 cup of Almond, Soy or Rice Milk (per serving)

  • Wooden Spoon

Directions:

  1. Open vanilla bean by running tip of paring knife down length of vanilla bean pod.
  2. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean pod.
  3. Place seeds into bowl. The remainder of the vanilla bean pod may be saved for other recipes.
  4. Add sugar, cocoa and salt.
  5. Stir with wooden spoon to mix all ingredients well.
  6. Place dry ingredients in pint size canning jars for Christmas gift giving or storage.

To Serve:

  1. Mix 2 tablespoons of dry hot chocolate mix with one cup of almond, soy or rice milk.
