Hot Cocoa Recipe--Super Easy!

Okay, I had a few requests for my Mom's cocoa recipe and as promised, here it is for you all:

As taken from her Facebook page:

8 qt box powdered milk (Carnation is best, but I can't find it this year!)

3 oz jar of Coffee Mate original powder (I always add quite a bit extra)

1 lb Nestle Quik powder

1/2 lb powdered sugar (I added probably almost a pound...and it tasted so good!)


Just mix everything up and you are done! (I bought a Christmas bucket at Wal-Mart with Bellie the other nite--it has a lid and everything!  Perfect for storing it.)

Serving size I used a 1/3 cup measuring cup.  Add hot water and you are done.  You can taste it before you add your marshmallows or marshmallow fluff to see if you need more mix.

It's so easy to make and my Mom always gets requests for her recipe.  I've drank this for years and I will never drink the packet stuff again!  Her recipe is that good and yummy.

Let me know if you have questions and then after you make it come back and tell me what you think.

ps-and you can always head over to my Mom's blog and leave her a thank you--I know she'd love it!

My friend just gave me a great hot cocoa recipe too and I had the hardest time finding powdered milk. I finally got some generic brand, but I bet the carnation would be better. I'll have to try this recipe out too and compare. :)
