  • 3/4 cup (75g) dutch processed cocoa powder (regular cocoa powder or cacao powder work as well)
  • 1/2 cup (120g) coconut sugar (or sub sugar of your choice)
  • 3 tablespoons (1.2 oz) dark chocolate chips or chunks
  • Optioanl: Pinch of salt

We like to serve it with:⁣


  1. Chop the dark chocolate into small chunks if needed. Add the cacao powder, coconut sugar, dark chocolate and salt to a food processor or high speed blender and blend all of the ingredients together until uniform.
  2. Carefully transfer to an air-tight container or mason jar and top it with marshmallows. You may need 1 to 2 jars depending on the size you use. I used a 16 oz jar, and had some leftover to fit in an 8 oz jar, so it was about 24 oz total.
  3. To serve: In a medium pot over medium heat, whisk 3 tablespoons of the mix together with 1 cup non-dairy milk. Heat just until it comes to a low boil. Remove it from heat and serve with a big dollop of So Delicious Cocowhip and garnishes of your choice. Enjoy!
