Hot Chocolate Mix
For years I always loved Hershey’s Syrup mixed with hot milk for hot chocolate. Topped with marshmellows or with a peppermint stick, it was fabulous. I didn’t care for dry mixes at all and please, no water!
However, a few years ago my mom gave me a jar of French Vanilla Hot Cocoa Mix that she’d made for me. I loved it! And I made a ton for gifts last Christmas. It’s makes a perfect gift when put in a canning jar with a pretty label and placed along with mugs, homemade marshmellows, sugar/cinnamon popcorn, and a gift certificate to Blockbuster. I even found a sugar free version to make my diabetic uncle!
So today I whipped myself up a big batch for the upcoming months. I think I’m going to go make some and curl up on the couch and watch a movie. You can too. Here’s the recipe:
French Vanilla Hot Cocoa Mix
2 1/2 Cup Dry Milk Powder
1 1/4 C. Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup Cocoa
1/2 Cup Vanilla Creamer (dry) I used Coffee-Mate Sugar Free, since there’s already powdered sugar in it.
Mix and add 1/3 cup to your mug and stir in hot milk.
