Cocoa Powder

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly versionSend by emailSend by email
  • 1-2/3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1-1/3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch process)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoons fine grain salt
  • optional: 2 vanilla beans
  • When using: warm milk and/or hot water

Combine all of the loose ingredients, sifting together into a tight jar.

If using vanilla beans, slice them down the back and place inside the jar with the dry mix -- your mix will be more and more vanilla infused over the next couple weeks.

To make cocoa with this mix, add ~4-5 tablespoons to every 8 ounces of warm milk and/or hot water.

Simmer a couple minutes.

Serve. Possibly with whipped cream. Ignore the people who want you to spoil it by adding marshmallows.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Enough for 12-16 cups of cocoa.
