Valentine’s Day Hot Cocoa Recipe

Valentine's Day Hot Cocoa Recipe by www.laurabraydesigns.comHot cocoa isn't just for Christmas.  February can be even colder than December and we all know chocolate is the official candy of love.  Why not whip-up a batch of delicious hot cocoa for your Valentine?  Be sure to add a red & white straw with a marshmallow and a maraschino cherry to give it a festive look.

I recently came up with a great hot cocoa mix recipe. My family is trying to eat more whole foods and less chemicals and when I read the ingredient list on the back of our instant cocoa mix, I knew I had to throw it out.  This mix has fewer chemicals and tastes great.  It fits in a quart mason jar and is perfect for gift giving or just keeping on the counter top for those days when you need a little liquid chocolate in your life.

Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe


  • 1 packet powdered milk
  • 1 cup cocoa-I use Girardelli's Sweet Ground Cocoa.  You can use unsweetened cocoa, but it's not going to taste as good. 
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt


Mix ingredients together and keep in a jar.  Mix a 1/4 cup of the mix in 1 cup of boiling hot water and stir.  If you are going to give as gifts, layer the ingredients in the jar for a pretty presentation.
