Home Made Hot Cocoa (Chocolate)

Need a quick easy gift? Whip up a batch of home made hot cocoa! This recipe makes a BIG batch and you can break it into smaller amounts for multiple gifts.

The ingredients:
10 2/3 Cup Instant Dry Milk
3/4 Cup
2 Cups Instant Chocolate (Nestle Quick)
3 3/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
4 TBLSP Cocoa

MIX all ingredients together, well. In other words, in a BIG plastic tub, put all these ingredients in, put on lid, and shake your booty!!!

To serve, mix 1/3 dry mix with 8oz of hot water! You can add marshmallows and flavor if you wish!

After your arm workout and a nice show for your hubby :-), your mix will look like the above!

Now, you can store your creation in an airtight container for your family, or you can put small amounts, I usually do 1 cup increments in baggies, into containers for teachers, mailmen, church friends, etc.

In the above picture, the baggies with mix are in little metal buckets that I got at Hobby Lobby. I was going to the Dollar store, but Hobby Lobby had them 1/2 price, so they were only $1.00!!

When the kids have 7 teachers, this is the most economical way to go!

Merry Christmas!
