  • Hot Chocolate

    I know that this isn't exactly the weather for it yet...however..there are days when I would like to have some in my pantry. What is your favorite way to make this? I would like to make the powdered stuff that you put in a can and then just heat up with milk whenever you want some. It has been awhile since I have made this...any suggestions? Thx

    Best Hot Chocolate Mix

    The secret ingredient in this mix is the mini chocolate chips, which melt when combined with the boiling water and give the cocoa an extra-rich flavor. The recipe makes enough for four gift-size portions, each of which can be measured into a small plastic bag and tucked into a cup or mug filled with mini marshmallows, candy stick stirrers, and a spoon. Wrap each filled gift cup in cellophane and don't forget to include a tag with the following instructions: "Spoon 3 or 4 generous tablespoons of cocoa mix into your cup (depending on the size), add boiling water, and stir well."

    2 cups nonfat dry milk powder
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
    1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
    1/2 cup powdered nondairy creamer
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1. Measure all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk them until they are evenly blended.

    2. Store the mix in a tightly covered container at room temperature until you're ready to package it. Makes about 4 cups of mix.
