Recipes that Use Leftover Hot Chocolate/Chocolate Milk Mix?

  • 6

I have a couple of half empty canisters of Ghiradelli Hot Chocolate that I don't use because I don't really drink hot chocolate anymore and this hot chocolate tastes more sugary than chocolatey. Are there any good recipes that use pre-sweetened hot chocolate?

  1. you can buy a neutral mousse mix and add the choc. for a great choc mousse!Also try adding kaluha.

    1. If you have the ground and sweet chocolate cocoa mix there is a great brownie recipe on the back or you can get it from the company website.

      1. I just mix it into plain yogurt.

        But I bet you could add it to cake, quickbread or pancake batter. I do something like that with banana bread. Or add a spoonful to tomato-based sauces and stews for extra depth...

        1. substitute it for the cocoa and sugar in a brownie recipe

          sift then fold into whipped cream: make an icebox cake with lady fingers, sponge cake, or good quality vanilla wafers.

          1. Substitute it as sugar for your morning coffee = Mocha!
