  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl or food processor, and mix well.
  2. Put 1/3 to 1/2 cup of the mix into a mug, and fill to 1 cup with hot water. Mix well.


Options to add to mix:
1 cup chocolate or white chocolate chips (whole or chopped via food processor)

Options to add to cup of prepared cocoa:
Whipped cream
Pinch of cinnamon and/or cayenne pepper
Sprinkle of shaved chocolate
Sprinkle of crushed peppermint candy or candy cane
A shot of espresso, added before the hot water

If you prefer using fresh milk, leave the powdered milk out of the mix. Add 3 tablespoons of the powdered mixture to the mug, and fill to 1 cup with hot milk.

*The cornstarch is added to help prevent caking, so can be omitted if desired.
