The flavors in this elegant blend are reminiscent of Old Spain. This recipe mix makes enough to serve at a social gathering or to mix and give for holiday gifts. If desired, omit the confectioners' sugar and add honey to the milk to sweeten.

I used this recipe to make a collection of different hot chocolates in a Christmas present I gave out to all my friends and family. This one was by far everyone's favorite blend. The drink is smooth minus the orange zest chunks. The flavor is rich. I used a combination of dark chocolate and regular chocolate powder Yummy. Read More

I made this mix for my daughter for Christmas who LOVES hot cocoa! She was pleasantly surprised at the myriad of flavors! I did have some trouble finding ground anise so I bought whole seed and ground it myself! Thank you so much for the recipe! Read More
