Nothing brings on the urge to warm up with a cup of hot cocoa quite like a change in the weather. This recipe is not only easy on the pocket but quick to make and absolutely delicious. I like to put my mix into pint jars for easy use and storage.
Hot Cocoa Mix
4 cups non-fat dry milk powder
1 cup non-dairy creamer
1 ½ c granulated sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ tsp. salt
In a large mixing bowl place all ingredients. Stir with a whisk until thoroughly combined. Makes enough to fill 5 pint jars. Store in a cool, dry place.
Stir 3 Tbs. cocoa mix into one cup hot water. Enjoy!
My kids love to add marshmallows to theirs. I like to top mine with a dollop of whipped topping. It makes a great gift too.
Take your pint jar of mix, tie with a ribbon, add a cute embellished label and a nice mug and you are all set. You can also add a handful of mini marshmallows tied up in a baggie and a homemade chocolate dipped spoon sprinkled with crushed candy cane bits or chocolate chips.
