The Homemade Spiced Hot Cocoa Mix is a lovely mix of flavors, with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and vanilla lending it a unique flavor and taste.
This Hot Cocoa mix can be made and stored to be used at any time when required either as an addition to milk, or to make desserts like Mocha Hazelnut Brownies, Chocolate Banana Bread with Hazelnuts, and Oreo Brownies. Using both cocoa powder and bitter sweet chocolate gives the deepest, flavorful chocolate flavor, and when this is added to milk and cream, it really becomes addictive. Since it is homemade, other spices can even be added if there is a special preference. Hot chocolate milk is perfect for cold, windy days and make a great replacement for tea and other beverages.
