I have a recipe that calls for sweetened cocoa. When I look around at the store, all they have is unsweetened cocoa.

Does anyone know how to sweeten cocoa - just add sugar??? in what ratio? Confused

I was also thinking that I could just use hot chocolate mix ....

Would love to hear your thoughts !!! Very Happy

Sweetened cocoa is generally just cocoa powder that has been premixed with sugar, not unlike a hot chocolate recipe. Prepackaged commercial hot chocolate mixes also include powdered milk and stabilizers. I think in a pinch you could use the premixed stuff with a decent amount of success, though I don't know how the additional ingredients might affect your recipe.

A better bet - and just as easy - is to get a homemade hot cocoa recipe mix together the suggested cocoa and sugar amounts, leaving everything else out. That'll make it sweetened correctly, and you can adjust to taste. You can find a basic homemade hot cocoa recipe just about anywhere, "The Joy of Cooking" I'm sure has one.

Hope this helps,
