Ten ways to use Preserve Company Hot Chocolate Mix
I LOVE our hot chocolate mix. And like with all the other products we carry at the Preserve Company, I’m constantly searching for ways to use the mix beyond a delicious cup of cocoa.
You might be surprised to learn how versatile a package of Preserve Company Hot Chocolate Mix is... if you think outside the cup!
Here are ten fun uses for that package of hot chocolate mix in your pantry. (How many more can you think of?)
🧁 Chocolate Muffins. Adding a spoonful of hot chocolate mix to your muffin batter gives your muffins a rich, chocolaty flavour. You could even sprinkle some hot chocolate mix on top of your muffins before baking them to create a chocolate crumble topping.
🥞 Chocolate Pancakes. Adding hot chocolate mix to your pancake batter will give your breakfast a new level of yum. For some extra decadence, serve with whipped cream and chocolate chips.
☕️ Chocolate Coffee. Try adding a spoonful of hot chocolate mix to your coffee for a mocha-inspired bevvie.
🍌 Chocolate Smoothies. Toss some milk, banana, hot chocolate mix and ice into a blender for a rich and creamy smoothie. Add peanut butter or protein powder and it becomes a meal! Bonus tip: if you have recipes that call for chocolate protein powder, but you only have vanilla…add a bit of hot chocolate mix to give it the flavour you’re looking for.
🍓 Chocolate Dipped Fruit. Melt some hot chocolate mix with a bit of milk and it makes a quick fruit dip! Let it harden in the fridge while you get your fruit ready for dipping. We suggest trying this dip with apples, strawberries, bananas, and pineapple.
🍪 Chocolate Fondue. Feeling fancy? Make a simple chocolate fondue by melting hot chocolate mix with heavy cream. Serve warm, with fruit, marshmallows, pound cake, and cookies for a fun, interactive dessert.
🍿 Chocolate Popcorn. Sprinkle hot chocolate mix over a bowl of buttered and salted popcorn for an addictive sweet and salty snack.
🍦Chocolate Sauce. Heat up some hot chocolate mix with milk and a pinch or two of cornstarch for a quick and easy chocolate sauce. Serve on ice cream or cake for a simple delicious dessert.
🍫 Chocolate Truffles. Combine hot chocolate mix with melted butter and condensed milk for a rich and creamy truffle filling. No need to be fussy. Just play with measurements until you have a texture you can work with. Whenever it feels right, roll the filling into truffle-sized balls and coat them with cocoa powder, sprinkles, chopped nuts, toffee bits, or anything else that sounds yummy to you.
🥜 Chocolate Bark. Melt hot chocolate mix with coconut oil and spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Top with your favourite nuts, candy, or dried fruit (try our chocolate-covered raisins!) and let it harden in the fridge before breaking into pieces and devouring.
See!? There are SO many ways to use that package of hot chocolate mix. Cocoa is delicious, but think outside the cup!
When you have hot chocolate mix on hand, you can add some chocolaty flavour to breakfast, prepare a decadent dessert, or make fresh fruit look a whole lot more appealing to your family! Enjoy!
