  • 100 g dark chocolate 70% cocoa solids
  • cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup powdered coconut milk powdered milk, or malted milk powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour


  • Cut the chocolate into chunks and add to the bowl of a food processor. Process until very finely ground, like the texture of almond meal. Add the rest of the ingredients to the ground chocolate and process until thoroughly combined.
  • If you don't have a food processor, finely grate the chocolate and stir the ingredients together by hand.
  • Transfer the mixture to an airtight container.
  • To make one serving of hot cocoa, add 2 rounded tablespoons of the hot cocoa mixture to 1 cup of milk in a small saucepan and warm gently over low heat, stirring with a whisk occasionally, until steaming. Do not simmer or boil. Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!


For vegans, use a suitable chocolate bar and your preferred non-dairy milk.
