I’ve never been a coffee drinker, I like everything coffee flavored – except for actual coffee. Anyone else? Most mornings I have a cup of black tea, but when I want to indulge it’s always with a good hot chocolate. Starbucks is my favorite hot chocolate, but having that on a regular basis can get spendy, and sometimes you just don’t want to have to leave your house on a cozy Saturday morning to brave the drive thru. The below chocolate powder recipe is the closest I’ve come to Starbucks, and might even be better;) I use it with this milk frother, which has pretty much paid for itself over the last year in substitution for ordering our drinks out.
Who doesn’t love a good chocolate recipe? Especially one that can be used is endless ways. Use this chocolate powder for pretty much whatever your heart desires – rolling cookies in, sprinkling on desserts, milkshakes, or my favorite, hot chocolate. If you’re feeling really adventurous add some homemade marshmallows from Whole Foods bakery department.
Recipe for Chocolate Christmas Powder
- 460 grams granulated sugar
- 116 grams cocoa powder (I like this brand)

Pour the sugar into a large bowl. Sift the cocoa powder, vanilla bean, salt, and cinnamon directly over the sugar, and then whisk to fully combine. Enjoy!
