I never have understood why most hot cocoa mixes call for store-bought chocolate drink mix as an ingredient. That just doesn't make sense to me. This verson is easier, cheaper, and in my opinion tastes better. Prep time does not include blending. The cook time is the time it takes to heat the water and stir in the cocoa. I have no idea on the serving size, so I gave it a wild guess.
I found this one at www.stretcher.com while looking for "homemade baking mixes". This recipe comes out rich and fudgy every single time. It's also very easy to put together initially. Prep time is the time it takes to mix a full batch of brownie mix and put it in bags. Putting it in bags is not necessary, it's just something I do to make an easy thing even easier. Please Note: I have changed the Yield. It was 12 bags. I made a batch tonight and got 10 bags. In my neck of the woods, the cost of each bags-worth of mix comes to $0.53, making this the least expensive dessert in my cookbook. I arrived at this price using Hershey's cocoa.
This is a delicious all-purpose dry seasoning that is good in spaghetti sauce, chicken and dumplings, in pasta salads, or sprinkled on fresh, ripe sliced tomatoes. It also makes a good Italian Salad Dressing for salads or marinade. Omit salt if you like.
