Ive been using this hot chocolate mix for years, but recently discovered its excellent to bring to a crowd too!
Heres a youtube video of how we made it- https://youtu.be/83f1fLidqfQ
To Make the Mix-
In a quart jar alternate between sugar and cocoa to make it shake together faster
2 cups organic cane sugar
1 1/2 raw cacao (I talk about in the youtube video the difference between raw cacao and cocoa and if you only have/have access to cocoa, by all means use it, but if you can order raw cacao from somewhere like http://www.omfoods.com for a really reasonable price, please do!)
1 tsp good salt
Measure 1 cup of sugar into the jar, stir the salt into it. Add 1 cup cocoa, 1 cup sugar, then the last 1/2 cup of cocoa. Put a lid on and shake well.
To make a cup (or just a few cups) of HOT chocolate
In a pot, measure out your milk (we use a mug to gauge how much we will need) and for every mug of hot chocolate use 1 tablespoon of mix. Warm it up and serve!
To make hot chocolate for a crowd in your instant pot
Pour a gallon of milk into your instant pot, turn it onto sauté to get it warming up, then measure in 1 cup of hot chocolate mix. Keep an eye on it and Stir the milk so it doesn’t burn to the bottom, whisking to mix in the hot chocolate mix as it warms up. When its hot enough, turn on to “keep warm”, leave the lid off and your guests can help themselves!
To Make Chocolate Milk-
We do this in a half gallon jar, fill the jar 2/3 of the way full with milk, add 1/2 cup hot chocolate powder, and blitz with an immersion blender. (Or you could just do a couple cups of milk and the powder in a normal blender, and mix into the rest of the milk) then top up the jar with more milk. Give it a shake before you pour as some will settle. Enjoy!
