Homemade Instant Hot Chocolate

Didn’t know instant hot chocolate contained hydrogenated oils?  Let’s take a peek at the labels of the two leading instant hot chocolates manufacturers.

corn syrup, sugar, cocoa (processed with alkali), hydrogenated coconut oil, nonfat milk, salt, less than 2% of: dipotassium phosphate, dextrose, mono- and diglycerides, acesulfame potassium, carrageenan, natural and artifical flavor, sucralose.

Those are the ingredients straight from a box of Swiss Miss Original Hot Cocoa. MANY ingredients are raising red flags here… obviously the hydrogenated oil but there’s also carrageenan and FIVE types of sweetener?!  Can’t we have hot chocolate without all the processed junk?!

Yes we can!  Making our own instant hot chocolate is SO easy to do, and it’s so good!  I made an entire jar of this in just a few minutes, and now it’s handy anytime we want a warming cup of deliciousness.
