Its going to be a cold Shabbat!

It’s cold out! The type of cold that gets under your skin and into your bones cold. Many of you are probably being hit the snow that is blessing (some may say plaguing, but I love snow) the country. When it is this cold and you can watch the snow through your windows, there is nothing more perfect than a steaming cup of hot chocolate. Now imagine that cup topped with a homemade marshmallow. So you may be thinking Homemade marshmallow no way – well YES WAY!

I don’t know about you, but I like my hot chocolate to be rich, creamy, and delightful. Hot chocolate in my mind could be decadent enough to be a dessert, maybe ppaired with something light, but that’s more because I always make more than is needed. Most store bought hot chocolate mixes contain dairy. There are some non dairy hot chocolate mixes out there, but lets be honest, they aren’t that good.


I was searching for something better. A pareve hot chocolate mix, that is creamy and rich and that can be used on Shabbat as well by just adding hot water. Here is what I found on



Hot Chocolate for dessert!

This recipe makes enough mix for four six-ounce servings.


7.5 oz dark chocolate, finely chopped

1.5 oz non dairy white chocolate, finely chopped

3/4 cup soy milk powder

3 Tablespoons good quality cocoa powder

2 Tablespoons sugar

24 oz boiling water

Place all the ingredients except the water in a food processor and blend until everything is well mixed and finely ground.

Place a generous 1/2 cup of mix in each cup. (YES you need that much) Pour in boiling water and whisk until well combined and smooth.
