  1. Sift the confectioners' sugar into a large bowl. 
  2. Sift the cocoa powder into a large bowl. 
  3. Combine the confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder. Add salt. Mix. 
  4. Now sift the mixture again in a large bowl. 
  5. Store in an air tight container. I highly recommend mason jars to store it. 
  6. Shake before using each and every time. 
  7. Serve with hot milk, or water, or even coconut milk to make a fabulous mug of Hot Cocoa. 


  • Use 1/4 cup dry mix to 3/4 cup milk.
