This is not your kiddies hot chocolate mix. No super sweet, mini marshmallow-laden mix here. This is an indulgent, dark chocolate version for those with a liking for such richness. If it seems a little intense for you, cut back on the dark cocoa, replacing it with more regular, although now you have just made really good regular hot chocolate mix instead of Deep Dark.…..;)
And don’t skimp on the mix to water ratio. 1/3 to 8 oz. seems like a lot, but that’s just what it takes to make it right!
A piping of sweetened whipped cream is the perfect topping. It melts to create a really nice subtly sweet contrast to the dark cocoa.
