      I was JUST about to post this amazing recipe that I saw this morning on the website and VOILA! Here it is. Here's what is said on the website: "Best-Ever Hot Cocoa Mix - Forget about the watery hot cocoa with dehydrated marshmallows you sipped as a kid--our instant hot cocoa recipe is creamy, rich, and big on chocolate flavor. Test Kitchen Discoveries - Nonfat dry milk adds a sweet dairy flavor to the cocoa, especially if you reconstitute the mix with hot milk instead of hot water. Confectioners sugar works best in this recipe--it dissolves quickly and the cornstarch (an ingredient manufacturers add to the sugar to prevent clumping) helps thicken the cocoa. White chocolate provided our cocoa with a soft, creamy texture and pushes the chocolate flavor to new heights." Thanks for posting. :-)

      I used coffee creamer and dark chocolate cocoa powder...I was afraid it would be too bitter, so I added a little extra sugar, which was not necessary. It was really sweet, which was totally fine with my 7 yr old. I made with water, because that's how he likes it. This is a keeper!

      This was a bit bitter to our tastebuds. It might have been the cocoa I used which was a blend of alkaline (Dutch process) and "normal" cocoa. We found we needed 1 more Tablespoon powdered sugar per serving. It may have something to do with the fact my husband prefers his hot cocoa made with water, and I did omit the salt. I'll try it again with milk (but I've already added extra powdered sugar to the mix). I did like how easily this disolved in the liquid.
