Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

There’s nothing like wrapping your fingers around a steaming mug of hot cocoa on a chilly day, and this recipe finds fans with kids and grownups alike with its subtle spice and touch of sweet.

1/2 cup Dutch cocoa (or high-quality cocoa powder)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 Tbsp. powdered milk
2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar (make sure to break up well)
1/4 Tbsp. salt
1 tsp. cayenne chili powder
3 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp. ginger powder

Whisk together all ingredients until combined. Keep in a cool, dry place for up to six months.

To reconstitute, combine 1 heaping tablespoon of cocoa mix with 5 ounces of hot water or milk and whisk until smooth. Add more cocoa mix, if desired.
