Triple Choco Cocoa Mix

I bought some very cool holiday mugs last year after Christmas.  They must have been really on sale because I bought five of them.  If I had to guess, I would assume they were 75% off.

My intent was to give them to my co-workers for the 2022 holiday but I wanted to throw in something a bit more.   I found a typical hot cocoa mix recipe but tweaked it a bit.

Cup and cocoa mix reading for gifting.

Triple Choco Cocoa Mix


This is a delicious, creamy warming treat.


  • 6 c. nonfat dry milk powder
  • 3 c. cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 plus 2 T. powdered sugar
  • 3/4 t. fine sea salt
  • 1 pkg. white chocolate chips
  • 1 pkg. 60% cacao chocolate chips


  1. Add all the dry powdered ingredients to a large bowl and carefully whisk until all ingredients are incorporated.
  2. Add chips and mix.
  3. To serve use 1/3 c. mix to 1 cup hot milk.

Yield: 30 servings

I used Ghirardelli chips in this recipe.  The next time I make this, I think I’ll throw in a bit of cinnamon.

My favorite way to drink this is to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk.   You can even use water but it’s not as creamy.

As I mentioned in my last post, In My Kitchen, I don’t know if the upcoming holiday posts will have a theme.   We will see.   Stay tuned.

On  different note, I just finished Mr. Dickens and his Carol  by Samantha Silva for an online book club.   I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I needed a good read lately as I’ve been slogging through struggle-bus books.

Mr. Dickens and His Carol

I would recommend this for a holiday read or a holiday gift to a reader.

    Cocoa sounds so good! That mix is really rich. I just use cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla.
