The Gentleman’s Momma’s Hot Chocolate Mix

Knock knock knock. It’s me, the Gentleman Caller.

I’m sitting writing as a cold front is blasting in and I have all the doors open in my house. It’s a late October morning and Autumn is setting in here in South Texas. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share my mom’s delicious, quick and easy hot chocolate mix.

Mom used to make this every year and give it away in glass jars as a little holiday gift. It makes a ton. In addition to being sweet, warm and delicious on its own, you may also add your favorite liqueur and adult it up. Enjoy!
