Homemade Cocoa Mix
Why I Love This Recipe
Here is a simple recipe for making great nonfat hot chocolate, also can be given as a gift. Can be stored in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place for several months.
Ingredients You'll Need
3/4 cup cocoa
1 cup sugar
3 cups instant nonfat dry milk (powdered milk)
dash of salt
Mix ingredients* together in a large bowl.
Use 2 tablespoons of mixture for every 4 ounces of boiling water.
Top with cinnamon, marshmallows, or whipped cream as desired.
Also great with a candy cane or cinnamon stick in the mug.
For an extra treat, place a square of dark chocolate in the mug before adding boiling water (stir well after water is added).
For best results, ingredients should be sifted together.
This is very time consuming, however, so to speed up the process only sift the cocoa and sugar then add the dry milk.
