Edible Holidays: Reach for the Jars
- 3 ½ cups sugar
- 1 vanilla bean (optional, but strongly suggested)
- 2 ¼ cups dark cocoa powder, such as E. Guittard Cocoa Rouge
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- Mason jars
One day prior, place vanilla bean in bowl of sugar. Let sit overnight.
Remove bean from sugar. Combine sugar with remaining ingredients. Voilà!
When serving, use 2-4 tablespoons of mix, depending on your taste, for every 1 cup of warm milk.
Chef’s note: “I’ve found that whole milk tends to work better, but any kind will do.”
