Hot Chocolate to Get You Through the Winter

Living in Maine, I know what essentials you need to make it through the winter. A down jacket. A wood stove. And a really freaking delicious hot chocolate recipe.

So here’s the recipe for my favorite hot chocolate mix, just for you!

Process these ingredients in a food processor until ground to powder: 1 cup sugar, 6 ounces unsweetened chocolate (chopped fine), 1 cup cocoa powder, 1/2 cup dry milk powder, 5 teaspoons cornstarch, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon ancho chile powder (Yes, chili powder. Trust me.)

To make the world’s best hot chocolate, heat one cup of milk and add 1/4 cup of this hot chocolate powder. I use an immersion blender to make it frothy.

Optional but recommended: awesome snarky mug from Teresa Conner, whipped cream, sprinkles, and a shot of Bailey’s. 😉
