Hot chocolate for a cold day- or maybe a mocha...

I found this recipe for hot chocolate mix- it is really good! I have changed one thing: I added 1/2 a bag of mini chocolate chips to the mix, and I like to add instant espresso powder to my cup for a yummy mocha. WOW is this good on a cold day.

* 2 cups powdered sugar
* 1 cup cocoa (Dutch-process preferred)
* 2 1/2 cups powdered milk
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 2 teaspoons cornstarch
* 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or more to taste
* 1 cup HOT water
Mix all ingredients together. Use 1/4 cup of mix to 1 cup hot water.

This hot chocolate (or mocha) is really good in a Gary Rith mug, I just happen to have them on SALE- 50% off! Stop into Thou Art Gallerage for a mug and a sample!
