One of the true delights of cold winter days is a toasty warm cup of hot chocolate. Growing up, my Mom ALWAYS had a tin of this instant hot chocolate mix in the cupboard. If stored in an air tight container, it can last up to 6 months in the pantry. Plenty of time to get you through the cold winter months! For gift giving purposes, this recipe filled 9 quart sized Mason jars. Yum!
Hot Chocolate Mix INGREDIENTS
- 2 boxes 8 quart instant milk
- 2 pound box Nestles Quick
- 2 pounds powdered sugar
- 1 11 ounce jar of coffee creamer*
Hot Chocolate Mix DIRECTIONS
Mix thoroughly and store in an air tight container.
To make: Mix 1/3 cup mixture to a cup of hot water. May add miniature marshmallows after powder is dissolved.
*If you prefer not to use a coffee creamer in your mix, add an additional 11 ounces of powdered milk. The mix will not be as creamy, but it is still hot and yummy.
