22+ Creative Uses for Hot Chocolate Mix

We recently launched our new “Comfort Cocoa” hot chocolate mix to much fanfare.  The simple, creamy raw cocoa base, paired with a pinch of sugar and spices, makes for such a comfortable and comforting beverage (as the name implies).   Since it’s dairy-free & gluten-free, it’s also a great gift or to share with guests.

But you don’t have to limit yourself to just mugs of choco-decadence.   Here are some additional creative uses for hot chocolate mix.

Hot Chocolate Infused Beverages

– Add a half teaspoon of hot chocolate mix into your coffee and create a creamy mocha.

– Drop a small spoonful of of mix into your smoothie for an extra taste boost; it’s great in vanilla, strawberry, or peanut butter smoothies.

– Add a small teaspoon into your chai; we’d say it’s the perfect dance partner for our stargazer chai.

 

Hot Cocoa in the Kitchen

– Add 1-2 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix into your cinnamon roll filling for chocolate cinnamon rolls.  (We have a nice cinnamon roll recipe here.)

– Add 1 teaspoon of cocoa mix into your cinnamon/sugar mix for rolling your snickerdoodles in.  It gets a little messy rolling them, and perhaps eating them, but the outcome is wonderful – the touch of bitterness in the cocoa is a lovely balance for the sweetness of the cookie.   Alternative, swap 1/4 to 1/2 cup cocoa for flour in any standard sugar cookie recipe.

– Hot cocoa goes with practically every brunch item possible.  Add 2 heaping teaspoons to your pancake batter, 2 teaspoons to your french toast batter, or waffle mix.  Add to muffins. Sprinkle on top of your oatmeal to elevate your breakfast to heavenly. Add a dash onto your buttered toast.  Or, whip cocoa mix into your maple syrup for a sweet cocoa topping.

– Whip a tablespoon of cocoa into the butter before putting on top of your popcorn; talk about a wild tasty surprise for moving night. (Don’t forget the napkins, though.)

– Add some cocoa to your monkey bread (especially that chai bread) and you’ll have everyone begging for that recipe.

– Add a dash of hot cocoa on top of ice cream – especially vanilla bean or cinnamon flavors; even better, drop several spoonful into your batch of homemade ice cream.

– Roll your banana into hot cocoa mix for a healthy, fun treat.  Or, keep on rolling if you’re having something more decadent, like brigadeiros.

Hot Chocolate for Adults

– Everybody loves a chocolate martini; use a vanilla or creamy vodka base and stir in a splash of cocoa mix

– You don’t have to put hot cocoa in the glass; the mix is perfect to dust the rim of your cocktail glasses.

– Did you know that red wine and hot chocolate do mix?    Give it a try!

 And…

Mix in with lotion for a invigorating face mask – similar to this matcha mask recipe.
