When winter storms hit, it is time to make up a batch of hot cocoa mix. I’ve made this recipe for several years. It is not too sweet and using the non-fat dry milk makes it a recipe even those in our family with lactose intolerance able to drink it. The recipe is as follows.
Hot Cocoa Mix
25.8 ounces dry non-fat milk
4 cups powdered sugar
2 cups cocoa powder
8 ounces powdered chocolate flavored creamer
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl or stockpot. Place into an airtight container.
To use: Add 3 Tbsp of mix per 1 cup of hot water.
Variation: if I have some on hand, I often add 1 large box of chocolate pudding mix to the recipe. The result is a cocoa that is a bit creamier.
