1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla sugar (use store-bought or see recipe below)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
½ teaspoon ancho chile powder
½ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 fresh vanilla bean
2 cups granulated sugar
Sift all ingredients together into a large bowl. Whisk the mixture together to be sure the spices are evenly distributed.
To serve, stir 3 tablespoons of the mix into 1½ cups (12 ounces) of hot milk. Serve in large mugs. Store the remaining mix in a tightly-sealed jar.
Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with the back of a knife. Combine the sugar, vanilla pod and seeds together and store in an airtight container for at least 1 week before using.
