Creamy Italian Hot Chocolate Mix

Italian Hot Chocolate (Cioccolata Calda) is famous all over the World because it’s unique: thick, creamy with a rich true chocolate flavor, it’s a perfect winter delight! Now you can prepare an easy mix to store in your pantry (or to make a lovely DIY Christmas gift) for up to six months.
With this mix, you can prepare for your friends and guests an easy to go instant Italian Hot Chocolate in two minutes.
I suggest to use a high-quality cocoa powder and dark chocolate (70%) to taste at home a perfect Hot Chocolate like in Italy.
If you want to make it in a low-fat version, you can avoid the dark chocolate and use low fat or vegetable milk.
