One Cup Serving

  • 2 T sugar
  • 1-2 T Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1 cup hot water or dairy alternative/milk of choice

4 Cup Serving

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4-1/2 cup Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 cups hot water or dairy alternative/milk of choice


  1. Mix the dry ingredients together and stir them into hot water, or your favorite allergy friendly milk/milk alternative. To make "the best" hot cocoa, add in your favorite flavor of coffee creamer! It's THE best! 
    For a milder chocolate taste (for children) use the 1T or 1/4cup cocoa. For a richer chocolate taste, use the 2T or 1/2cup.
