Hot Cocoa Dry Mix in Mason Jars


Hot Cocoa Dry Mix in Mason Jars

Cookie Moll left this recipe in the comments of my Homemade Baking Mix post, and it sounds amazing! There have been a few questions about the actual pouch size of the dried milk, so I contacted Cookie and she clarified the ounce size, thank you Cookie!!


Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

  • Author: Jennifer Morrisey


  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, preferably Dutch process
  • 2 1/2 cups Peak Instant Full-Cream Dry Whole Milk Powder
  • 1 teaspoon fine-grain salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Hot milk or water to serve


Combine the confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder, milk powder, salt, cornstarch in a large airtight container. Secure the lid and shake vigorously to combine, and remember to shake prior to every use.

Place 2 tablespoons of the mix in a mug and add about 2 fluid ounces hot water or milk. Stir to combine. Fill the mug with more hot water or milk and enjoy.

  • I have just found your web site and printed out two recipes I have wanted for a long time: the hot chocolate and the homemade bisquick mix. I love to cook, do as much from scratch as possible because it’s healthier. With food prices soaring it saves a lot of money, too! A late-night comedian said recently, “If your food package lists ingredients you can’t pronounce, DON’T EAT IT!!” Hear, hear!
