I've rediscovered hot chocolate, but wanted to make something better than what you buy in the store. I took components from a couple of different recipes and made them into my recipe. This makes a LOT of cocoa mix, so you may want to cut the recipe in half. Alternatively, it makes a wonderful gift, so you may want to double it and share with friends and family!
5 cups dry milk powder
3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1 cup cocoa powder
1 ¾ cups non-dairy creamer
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and stir thoroughly until combined. Store mixture in an airtight container.
For an extra special touch, add a flavored non-dairy creamer such as French Vanilla, or add an additional ¼ cup of sifted powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Place 3 heaping tablespoons of cocoa mixture into coffee cup or mug and add ¾ cup of boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Top with a dollop of whipped cream or marshmallows.
