Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix (Gluten Free Recipe)

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix (Gluten Free Recipe)

In season? Hot chocolate mix!

Here’s something that, in winter, can’t miss in my kitchen pantry. The hot chocolate mix seems to be a family traditions. Among the pages of an old family cookbook, where my grandmother Sara used to write her recipes, I found her recipe for homemade hot chocolate mix. It isn’t that. What I’m sharing today is a mix that I developed by myself.

The ritual of the preparation is a moment all mine.

I take the jar where I store the preparation, I heat the milk and, in a few minutes, I have my hands stuck to the cup, even if it is boiling hot, and my nose looks dangerously on the edge to enjoy one of the best aromas in the world, that of cocoa. Equal merit with bread, what do you think?

Apparently I’m not the only one who loves the queen of winter drinks. I asked on Instagram if chocolate should be with or without whipped cream. Most people prefer chocolate with cream. And everyone drinks hot chocolate anyway.

I certainly prefer chocolate with panna montata. But it’s a cuddle even without it.

Sometimes I like to change the flavor. Among the aromas I prefer: cinnamon, cardamom and star anise. Sometimes I add chilli or ginger. Which do you prefer?

If you want to add a spice to the preparation, add 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, cardamom or star anise (powdered spices). Ginger, 1 level teaspoon; 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder (then it’s up to you to decide!).

Good hot chocolate, Monica

Instead of traditional milk, you can use a rice drink.
