When I saw a recipe claiming to be the best hot cocoa mix ever, it was a challenge for me. “Oh yah, we’ll just see about that!” is what I said to myself. I have tried many cocoa mixes in my life and feel I could have a fair opinion to the claim. Now, I mean I could be considered a amateur connoisseur of hot cocoa mixes.
I must say that this darn well could be the best hot cocoa mix ever. The other mix I shared this week is great and I love it, but this one is more sophisticated. Sophistication always seems to come from Europe and this mix uses Dutch processed cocoa. Now don’t be alarmed by the “Dutch processed” cocoa powder. You should be able find it in the good old grocery store. “Dutch processing” is just a way of processing the cocoa powder which is suppose to give it a mild yet more chocolaty flavor.
The cocoa mix could also qualify as a hot chocolate because you blend up white chocolate chips into the mixture. With the combination or the dutch cocoa powder and the white chocolate chips – you get a very full and rich flavored coca from a mix. You also mix this one into milk instead of hot water also adding the the flavor of your cup of cocoa. So there you go, this just could be the best ever cocoa mix!
