I love the sweet and salty taste of sea salt and caramel, it is one of my favorite flavor combinations. When you add both flavors to hot Cocoa it’s even more amazing. We love to make hot drinks like cider, or hot cocoa while we decorate our christmas tree, this year I made Sea Salt Caramel Hot Cocoa and it was a huge hit.
Making your own cocoa mix is easy to do. I make this ahead of time and store in an airtight container.
Homemade hot cocoa mix:
- 10 cups of powdered milk
- 2 cups unsweetened cocoa
- 1 3/4 cups non-dairy creamer powder
- 5 cups of powdered sugar
Add all ingredients into large bowl, stir until combined. Store in airtight container.
