Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

This is also the season for hot chocolate! I find store brands a bit too sweet for my taste, so when I found online recipes for homemade hot chocolate mix, I concocted my own using tips and ingredients from Alton Brown and also some from Martha Stewart. Find some good quality unsweetened cocoa, confectioner’s sugar and a few other spices and you’ll have a batch that will last you the whole month.

The important thing to know is that: For 1 cup of milk , use 2 tablespoons of your mix.  How about making some of our marshmallows to impress your family with gourmet homemade marshmallows and hot chocolate mix?
