  • 2 1/2 cup sugar (next time I will try the Zing half sugar/half Stevia mix)
  • 1 1/3 cup cocoa
  • dash salt
  • disposable spoons (we found great wooden ones on Amazon!)
  • optional ingredients for dipped spoons:
  • milk, dark or white chocolate melting wafers (found in grocery or craft stores)
  • crushed peppermint candy, jimmies, sea salt, candy sprinkles and/or peanut butter!

  9. I put my hot cocoa mix into one quart canning jar but you can make 2 pint sized jars or even place some of the mix into a sealable baggie and place it into a pretty cup, then tie your spoons to the handle as a nice little gift or party favor. Easy and fun to create and so pretty when completed!

  11. You may add instructions (or the recipe) on little tags attached to the cup, if you'd like. It's 2 tablespoons of the cocoa mix per cup of milk or almond milk and it's really good.
