The recipe actually is a two-in-one deal: first, we’ll prepare a hot chocolate mix with dry milk powder, white chocolate, lavender essential oil and a little cornflour (cornstarch). You can pack the hot chocolate mix in decorative jars, slap a pretty label on and ready is a yummy gift for lovers of all things sweet and lavender. Secondly, to prepare a cup of hot chocolate, simply add a few tablespoons of the mix to milk or water and bring to boil. I found that milk creates a slightly creamier texture, while hot chocolate made with water will make a lighter drink.

What lavender essential oil to use?

This recipe is prepared with lavender essential oil, which creates a rich, authentic lavender flavour. Many lavender essential oils are safe for consumption but always double-check beforehand. LorAnn’s Natural Lavender Oil, for example, is a good, food-grade botanical oil. I found that 10 to 12 drops of essential oil create a nice lavender aroma, but the intensity may vary depending on what oil you use.

Lavender Hot Chocolate

Prep Time: 20 min

Freezing Time: 20 min

Cooking Time: 3 min

Yields: 400 g mix

If you prefer a stronger chocolate flavour, omit the white chocolate and use 225 g (8 oz) semisweet chocolate instead.

Ingredients

For the lavender hot chocolate mix

  • 200 g (2 cups) dry whole milk powder
  • 3 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 225 g (8 oz) white chocolate, chopped
  • 10 – 12 drops lavender essential oil (see tips above)

 

For 1 cup hot chocolate

  • 250 ml (1 cup) milk or water
  • 2 – 3 heaped tbsp hot chocolate mix
  • whipped cream or mini marshmallows (optional)

 

For packaging

  • glass jars with lids or airtight containers
  • printable labels (download below)

Instructions

1) Prepare the chocolate

Put the white chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave set to low in 30-second intervals. Stir the chocolate in-between each interval until fully melted. Then add a few drops of essential oil and pour the chocolate on a lined baking tray (sheet). Spread out into a thin layer with an offset spatula and freeze until solid, for about 20 minutes.

Info: Freezing the chocolate helps to grind it without melting in the blender later.

 

2) Mix the dry ingredients

Sift the milk powder and cornflour into a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Transfer 3 tablespoon of this mixture into a blender or food processor. Add the frozen chocolate and grind until pulverised. Lastly, combine the milk powder with the ground chocolate and fill into sealable jars or containers to store.

 

3) Cook the hot chocolate mix

To prepare the hot chocolate, pour a cup of milk or water into a small saucepan, add 2 to 3 heaped tablespoons hot chocolate mix and bring to boil while stirring constantly.

Storage & Shelf Life

Store the lavender hot chocolate mix in an airtight jar or container in a cool, dark place and away from direct sunlight or any heat source. The shelf life of the mix is dependent on the ingredient with the shortest shelf life.
