I made the hot chocolate mix awhile back and the flavor is pretty good BUT...the cocoa doesn't dissolve very well when I had hot water. I've tried several ways, add a little bit of water and stir the dickens out of it, then add more water; place it in a jar with hot water and shake the dickens out of it.
So, now I get as much dissolved as I can then scoop out with my spoon the clumps and throw them away.
I would say about half to 2/3 of the cocoa dissolves and the other is pretty nasty if you get it in your mouth. I used the dutch cocoa form Trader Joes.
Any hints, should I run it through the flour sifter or something?
I'm wanting to make some of this to give as gifts for Christmas, but not until I get the undisolved problem taken care of.
