For the hot cocoa mix:

  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the remainder of the board:

  • Dairy free semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Dairy free white chocolate chips
  • Shredded coconut
  • Orange zest
  • Vanilla mini marshmallows
  • Peppermint mini marshmallows
  • Candy canes
  • Enjoy Life chocolate chip cookies
  • Oreos
  • Birthday cake sugar and spice blend

For serving:

  • dairy-free milk of choice, like oat or almond


  1. Pour the ingredients for the hot cocoa mix into a large bowl, then stir together until thoroughly combined. Transfer to a small mason jar.

  2. Place the jar of cocoa mix in the center of your charcuterie board. Arrange the additional ingredients on the board as you please.

  3. When ready to enjoy hot chocolate, heat up your dairy free milk for serving. You can do this on the stovetop or in the microwave. For the microwavable single-serving, place 1 1/4 cup in a microwave safe cup and heat for about 1:30 to 2 minutes. (Be careful, cup may be hot when removing from the microwave).

  4. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons* of hot cocoa mix to the mug, along with any other additions from your charcuterie board. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I recommend 3 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix per 1 1/4 cups of warm plant-based milk.  However, if you're adding in chocolate mix-ins like semi-sweet chocolate chips, you may want to only do 2 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix.
