A cold winter's day is the perfect time to enjoy a mug of hot chocolate- one of our favorite family beverages At our house; we prefer to make our own large-sized tub of hot cocoa mix rather than buying those expensive single-serving pouches at the grocery store. And we think this recipe for homemade hot cocoa mix tastes better too!

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe:
This is so easy to mix together- that my kids can do it themselves!
- 4 cups nonfat dry milk powder
- 1½ cups of sugar
- 1 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder (I prefer Hersheys or Ghiradelli)
- 1 cup of mini-sized semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup of powdered nondairy creamer
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
- Mix all of the ingredients in one large tub until well blended.
- Add hot water to 3-4 tablespoons of the homemade hot cocoa mix and stir well! Add marshmallows if desired! Enjoy!
Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix Container and Label:
The plastic container that I use to store our hot cocoa mix is a recycled food container from a prior use in my home- I can't even recall what was originally in it! But you can find a similar one here from Rubbermaid in the 6-quart size (lid sold separately).
