Tasty Tuesday - Hot Cocoa

Nothing is better that enjoying a cup of hot chocolate on a cold day. 
This year I wanted to create a homemade powder recipe instead of relying on store bought hot cocoa mixes. After trial and error, (and wonderful friends who volunteered to taste samples). I found one that was perfect.

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup cocoa (Dutch-processed is preferred for those who like dark chocolate and making mocha. Most preferred using 1/2 Dark and 1/2 regular)
2 1/2 cups or 15oz powdered non-dairy creamer (use a flavored one for fun)
1tsp ground chia
1tsp salt
2tsp cornstarch 

Blend with whisk in large bowl. Store in a cute jar or sealed plastic bag.

Place 3 scoops of mix in a mug then add hot water or hot milk. Stir.

For an "adult beverage" add a shot of cherry liquor or peppermint schnapps. 

Place 1 scoop in a mug then add coffee to make a mocha.
