Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

3 cups Nestle’s Quick
8 cups instant dry milk
8 ounces powdered coffee creamer
1/2 cup powdered sugar (or to taste)
2/3 cups Hershey Cocoa

Blend all ingredients in a large bowl. To mix a cup, fill your cup with about 1/2 Hot Cocoa Mix and half hot water or to taste.

This makes a fun holiday gift! Just put it in a jar with a label and instructions attached. Make sure to make a batch or two for you too. The kids love it with marshmallows or whipped cream on top!

    OMG! I used to make this and lost the recipe.
    Thank you so much! I always do up a handmade basket for gifts and miss adding this hot cocoa mix to it. I also add a bag of mini marshmallows to the mix and a peppermint stick tied to the packaging to stir it with ~ LOVE IT!

    My family likes using milk with their swiss miss brand. So I was wondering if you have used milk instead of water?

      I don’t see why you couldn’t use hot milk. Let me know how you like it! -Amy
