    This is very good, have been making it for over 20 years for co-workers, friends and neighbors. I make mine with milk also for a more flavorful drink.

    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!

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

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