I have been so busy these past few weeks, too busy to even think about putting up a blog. That is not to say that I have not been thinking about you guys. I have so many great recipes that I want to share with you, but they will have to wait until the new year. I wanted to share a few Holiday recipes with you as I prepare them for my family and friends. This recipe for hot chocolate is one such recipe. It makes a great gift and it’s not overly complicated to make. I added the mix to some mason jars and purchased some white tops to replace the metal lids to give them a more elegant look. Add a ribbon, and you’ve got a perfect food gift for a loved one, not to mention some fantastic hot chocolate mix for yourself!
8 oz semi-sweet organic chocolate bar ( 70%-100%)
1 cup of unsweetened baking chocolate powder
1 cup of organic sugar can sub with maple sugar
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
Directions: Place the chocolate bar into the freezer so that it’s frozen solid before you process this mix. It Should not take longer than 10 minutes for it to freeze. Roughly chop the frozen chocolate bar,
Place it and all of the other ingredients into a food processor,
Blend until the ingredients are completely powdered–about 2 minutes.
Once powdered, transfer to an air tight container.
When ready to use, add 2-3 tablespoons of the hot chocolate mix to 1 cup of milk– You can use any kind of milk you like, you can also use water. Bring the milk/water and hot chocolate mix to a boil in a sauce pan.
