Hot Chocolate Mix

Here’s another easy gift idea.  Who doesn’t like a nice cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows?  Okay, maybe someone who doesn’t like chocolate.  Since it’s winter, this is a nice gift to help the recipient of the gift warm up on those cold days.

Hot Chocolate Mix

Stars of the recipe:

  • 2 c. dry milk
  • 1/2 c. cocoa powder
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. nondairy creamer (I used French vanilla.)
  • optional:  mini marshmallows, mini candy cane, or chocolate chips


  1. Combine all the ingredients except marshmallows, mini candy cane, or chocolate chips.
  2. When ready to make a cup of hot chocolate, place 2 to 3 heaping Tbsps. of mix in a coffee mug.
  3. Pour 6 ounces of boiling water over the mix.
  4. Top with either chocolate chips, marshmallows, or mini candy cane.
  5. Enjoy!

If you want to make a Mexican hot chocolate, add 2 tsp. Ground cinnamon to the mix.

If you will give it as a gift, place 6 Tbsp. of the mix in a bag and the marshmallows or chocolate chips.  If you give a candy cane, tape it to the outside of the bag.  Place the instructions: combine 2 – 3 Tbsp. Mix with 6 ounces of boiling water.
