Hot Chocolate Powder MixThere is nothing better than a warm cup of cocoa after a day of sledding with the family. For years I have tried everything kind of hot chocolate mix out there and they were okay and some were even better than okay but they were not what we were looking for in a hot cocoa.
Until one day I ran across a recipe of a mix and I started to change a few things in it until our family loved it. This is now our go to recipe for hot cocoa.
1-1/2 C Cocoa Powder (I used Hershey's)
3 C Powdered Sugar
5 C Powdered Milk
1 C Powdered Creamer
I mix together all the ingredients and run in through a strainer of sifter so that it mixes more quickly in the warm water.
When serving mix 3 tablespoons with a cup of warm water, top with whipped cream or marshmallows.
This mix is also good to give as gifts in jars as well.
You can make a few quick modifications to the recipes to make:
Mexican Hot Chocolate
- add 2 tsp of ground cinnamon
Candy Cane Hot Chocolate
I put about 8 to 10 candy canes in the blender and add it to the mix to make Candy Cane Cocoa the kids love this!
