Today is National Cocoa Day! But then I noticed that National Hot Chocolate Day is January 31t which got me to thinking – what is the difference?

Hot Cocoa vs Hot Chocolate

Did you know that there technically is a difference between hot chocolate and hot cocoa? I think most people use the two interchangeably, verified by the mixed information I found online when looking up the difference.

Hot cocoa is usually made from cocoa powder, sugar, and milk. As a result is it sweet and light in body. Sometimes it may also have vanilla or cinnamon added. The perfect example of hot cocoa are those packets of Swiss Miss.

Hot chocolate on the other hand is melted chocolate in hot milk. No added sugar needed. Sometimes you cannot tell the difference between the two because the chocolate is so finely chopped so it melts quickly, that is looks just like the stuff in hot cocoa packets. This is also sometimes called drinking chocolate.

Homemade Cake Batter White Hot Cocoa

Since my homemade mixes usually contain both cocoa powder and finely chopped chocolate, I am not entirely sure which to call it. I supposed since I add sugar to mine they are hot cocoa, but just like the internet I use them both to mean the same thing.

White Hot Cocoa Mix

As such, today’s recipe is called cake batter white hot cocoa mix. Although it does not contain cocoa powder, it does have added sugar, and some would argue that white chocolate isn’t “real” chocolate anyway. But I don’t care cause I love it as made evident by my slow cooker white hot chocolate, white hot chocolate pods, and white hot chocolate cupcakes.

It also has actual white cake mix in it as well. So if you are like me and love raw cake batter, this hot cocoa is for you. Serve with whipped cream and sprinkles! It would also make a great gift/stocking stuffing ;-).
