It’s getting colder outside and since we just had our first snowfall this past week, I decided it was time to make a batch of my homemade cocoa mix! After all, here in Minnesota there is nothing more comforting and cozy then a cup of hot cocoa on a cold wintery day! The best part of about this mix is the ingredient list is pretty short and it takes just a few minutes to make a batch too! I love having a full container in our hot chocolate bar for those sudden cravings! This cocoa mix also makes a wonderful homemade gift for family and friends too!
