Total Time: 5 Minutes
4 Cups Dry Mix (17, 8oz cups of hot cocoa)
Sift together powdered sugar, cocoa powder, salt, ancho powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and perfected guar gum. Place the sifted mixture into a bowl.
Finely grate chocolate over a microplane into the sifted mixture and whisk together until evenly incorporated.
Store in an air-tight container until use.
To make a cup of hot cocoa measure 28g (4 tbsp level) and place it into 8oz of hot water.
