Hot cocoa is a winter staple. This is my favorite recipe for creating a large batch of Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix that can be ready in an instant!

Now you can skip the store-bought pouches and just whip up a big container of this. It’s great to have on hand for when the mood strikes or company arrives over the holidays.

Combine the ingredients, except for the marshmallows, in a large bowl. Whisk thoroughly to combine.

Place in a sealed container or divide into individual servings. One serving is 1/3 cup cocoa mix plus milk. Garnish with mini marshmallows.

To prepare the hot cocoa, place 1/4 to 1/3 cup cocoa mix in a mug. Pour in warm milk. Stir until well blended. Top with mini marshmallows.

This hot cocoa mix also makes a great gift. I would double the batch and portion it out in small mason jars. Tie a pretty ribbon around each jar and add a candy cane, and you’re good to go.
