  • I guess it depends on what you mean. Do you mean using it to replace something else like flour? Probably not, but if you mean to add it for extra flavor then maybe. I use Hot Cocoa mix for my red velvet cake and it turns out great.

  • You could probably find specific recipes using cooca mix. I wouldn't recommend replacing dutch process cocoa with hot cocoa mix. Cocoa mix is not pure cocoa and you won't get a true chocolate flavor. (It has dried milk and additives.)
