I love this recipe because it only has two ingredients. I didn’t have to go searching for a powdered milk that I was happy with, it is foolproof to mix together, works with whatever milk or non-dairy milk I have on hand, and easy to make when excited little ones are bouncing around at your feet. I make a double batch and keep it in a nice container in the pantry for cocoa emergencies. This recipe comes from a great blog called Whole Lifestyle Nutrition.

1 cup organic cane sugar, rapadura, coconut sugar or granulated honey
1/2 cup organic cocoa powder
6 oz per cup milk of choice
Combine sugar and cocoa powder in a pint size mason jar.
Place the lid on and shake until well combined.
On the stove top, warm 6 oz of milk to desired temperature. Do not boil the milk.
Once warm, stir in 2 tbsp of hot cocoa mix per 6 ounces of milk and stir until dissolved. So if you are making 2 cups you would add 12 oz of milk and 4 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix.
Pour into mug and add marshmallows or fresh whipped cream.
