Hot Chocolate Mix

Hot Chocolate Mix from Cooks My Books

I have been thinking about hot chocolate a lot lately. Probably because it has been snowing here for a few days and I’m freezing my buns off. I have always loved hot chocolate. Even the thought of taking sips from a big mug on a cold day makes me grin.

When I was a kid, I remember happily making hot chocolate from the little Swiss Miss packets. But when I was a little older, everything changed one day when my mom said “I found this recipe for a hot chocolate mix in an old cookbook. Let’s give it a try.”

It took a couple of times to get the mixture just how we wanted it, but after that I was hooked. I never wanted anything else. And with only 4 ingredients, it is super simple to make.

To make the mix, stir the dry milk, powdered creamer, powdered sugar, and Nesquik together in a large bowl until combined. That’s it. You’re done.┬áIf you want the mix to have a more uniform look, like the ones you get at the store, you can put the mix in a food processor or blender and process it in batches. Return to the bowl and mix together again. Store in an airtight container. I use quart size mason jars. The mix will fill up about 4 of them.

To make the hot chocolate, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of the mix to 1 cup of hot water. Stir until the mix has dissolved. Add marshmallows or whipped cream, if desired, and enjoy.
