***Earl Grey Hot Chocolate Mix*** Makes about 4 cups of hot chocolate mix, enough to make about 20 cups of hot chocolate. Recipe easily doubles if you want to make more for holiday gifts. *INGREDIENTS*
½ cup dark or bittersweet chocolate chips*
½ cup loose leaf Teatulia Earl Grey Tea
1¾ cups granulated sugar
1¼ cups Dutch cocoa powder*
Notes: *Spring for the good stuff and use really high quality chocolate chips and cocoa powder for the best tasting hot chocolate. *PREPARATION*
To make the hot chocolate mix:
Use a spice grinder or food processor to grind the Earl Grey tea as fine as possible; it will mix into the hot chocolate best if its finely ground.
Use the same spice grinder or food processor to grind the chocolate chips as fine as possible; they will dissolve into the hot chocolate better this way.
In a large bowl, whisk the ground tea and ground chocolate with the sugar and cocoa until thoroughly combined.
Transfer the mix to cute, sealable jars and label. Be sure and include the easy instructions to make hot chocolate (below) on the label if you’re giving these as gifts. The mix will last for months if stored in well-sealed containers.
