Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

I was looking for something creative yet simple to do as a happy for friends and coworkers this Christmas season and I stumbled upon this post on Pinterest. It was good hot chocolate, but it needed more. So I played with the recipe a bit and looked at a homemade Nesquik recipe here. We don't do just any chocolate milk, it's always "Ovaltine and Nilk pwease" around here. All that being said, I came up with this recipe which makes roughly 2 quarts dry mix.

Homemade Hot Cocoa/Chocolate Mix

2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup non-dairy coffee creamer
2 cup dry milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar
pinch of salt

Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl with a fork or whisk until larger clumps are mixed in well. Store in glass airtight container.

To make a mug, add 3-5 heaping tablespoons of mixture to hot water. Add marshmallows or marshmallow bits if you like. Enjoy. It's smooth and chocolatey and way better tasting than SwissMiss.
