1 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate, finely grated

1/2 cup whole dry milk powder

1 orange, zested

Pinch cinnamon, to taste

Marshmallows, optional


  1. Tip: I used the fine side of a box grater to finely grate the bittersweet chocolate.
  2. Place the milk powder, grated chocolate, orange zest and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl and combine thoroughly. Spoon the mixture into attractive tins or jars. Label with instructions to use 1/2 cup of chocolate mixture with 1 cup of hot milk or water.
  3. To make hot chocolate: Pour milk into a saucepan and heat until hot but not boiling. Stir in the hot chocolate mixture and bring to a boil. You can also use a cinnamon stick to stir the hot chocolate. In that case, do not add the ground cinnamon in the recipe. Serving with marshmallows is optional.
