Nothing helps a cold winter’s day like a warm beverage! This hot mocha mix combines the sweetness of hot cocoa with the deliciousness of coffee to create a drink that will warm you right up! No need to go to a coffee house for a mocha latte when you can make one at home!
In our house hot chocolate is a winter tradition. When the snow falls I make sure we have some because whether my boys are playing in it, or helping to shovel it, when they come in it’s time for hot chocolate!
A couple of years ago I had the idea of mixing some in with my coffee and it was a game changer! The tastes of coffee and chocolate go so well together!
If you frequent coffee shops you likely already know this, mocha lattes are always on the menu, and that is because it is a winning flavor combination!
This mocha mix makes it super easy to make one at home. Just a few scoops into hot water (or milk to make it richer) and you’ve got yourself a delightful beverage without having to go to the coffee shop!
This hot mocha mix is great for making at home and it is great for gifting! It is so easy & affordable! Perfect for your mailman, neighbors, teachers, friends… anyone on your list who is a coffee or chocolate lover!
If you are making this for yourself you can just mix everything up in a bowl and store it in an airtight container. If you are making it to gift it is really pretty layered in a Mason jar!
I’ve created pretty printable tag that you can tie to the jar with a ribbon or twine to make gifting even easier!
Just print them out, cut them out and use a hole punch to make a hole in the top and tie them to your jar!
If you want to swap out the coffee with decaf that is fine, and you could also swap the sugar for xylitol for a lower calorie option.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this Hot Mocha Mix-
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Cups Powdered Milk
1/3 Cup Instant Coffee
If you’re making this to enjoy yourself you can mix all the ingredients together in an air tight container.
When you want to make a cup to enjoy mix 2 Tbsp of the mix in 6-8 oz of water or milk. Milk will make it richer and you can add more or less mix to make it have more or less mocha flavor.
To make it for a gift-
Layer each ingredient in a quart size Mason jar.
A canning funnel makes it much easier. I like to alternate white and brown for a pretty pattern but you can layer in whatever order you like.
I start with the powdered milk, then instant coffee, sugar, and cocoa powder.
Once you have everything layered in you can twist on the top and add tie a gift tag around the lid!
