Hot Chocolate Mix - Thug Kitchen

This winter why not treat yourself to something like a big mug of this holiday hottie? Or if you’re the generous type, throw a big bath of this mix in a jar, slap a fucking bow on it, and now you’ve got a cheap and tasty gift. If your friends bitch about getting hot chocolate as a present, you need some new fucking friends. New Year’s Resolution: GET FRIENDS WITH SOME DAMN TASTE.

½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons cocoa powder*
1 tablespoonm cane sugar**
2 teaspoons arrowroot powder or cornstarch
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 cups of non dairy milk like almond or oat

To make the mix throw the chocolate chips, cocoa powder, arrowroot powder, cinnamon, and sugar if you’re using it into a blender or food processor and let that shit run until everything is a fine powder. You can store this away in the pantry or get right to making some hot chocolate.

Warm up the milk on the stove over a medium-low heat until small bubbles start to form at the edge of the pan. Whisk in the mix until there are no clumps and keep stirring it for about a 1½-2 minutes. You don’t ever want this shit start to simmer, just those little bubble around the edges.
Serve right away with whipped cream, candy cane bits, marshmallows, whateverthefuck you’re in to.

Double or quadruple this recipe to keep this shit handy anytime you want to warm up with something sweet. Hot chocolate for one? We’ve got your lonely ass covered. Just use 2 tablespoons of the mix for every cup of milk you want to use.

* The kind you’d make brownies with.
** Optional. There’s already sugar in this from the chocolate chips but if you know you like it sweet, add this in.

Pairs With...

Rosemary Caramel Corn

You might be thinking rosemary and caramel corn might seem odd as hell together but that shit works. Unlikely combinations have given us such amazing things like Alien vs Predator. Or Freddy vs Jason. Or Batman and Scooby Doo.


Wine Cake

There’s rum cake and that’s pretty dope, right? So why not wine cake? Some people might see a cake and ask why, we see a cake and ask wine.


Pumpkin Ginger Blondies

Don’t waste another Fall by settling for some lesser seasonal treat. That overhyped bullshit distracts from the real fucking reason for the season: DESSERT. Bake these bitches up and you’ll realize pumpkin is better chewed, not sipped.


Frosted Gingerbread Bites

Last minute holiday shopping? FUCK ALL THAT NOISE. Why don’t you stay home and celebrate in style with some of these spicy sweet bastards?


Sweet Potato Chai Spiced Scones

You mean to tell me there’s some motherfucker that builds toys in his house on a sheet of ice all year then delivers them in one night and you’re just gonna fucking offer him store-bought cookies?
