Made this for christmas gifts..everyone loved it. I did change a couple of things. I used 1/2 Vanilla pudding and 1/2 milk chocolate pudding and also used chocolate flavored coffee creamer. Doubled it once..and then had to make another double batch. Sent some over to a friend in IRAQ and he shared it with his buddies..he got one cup and went back and there was no more left. I guess I'll be sending more that way. :) The kids loved it and the one comment I keep hearing back over and over is how creamy it is. Thanks for posting.
The kids love it. I cut the recipe down to an eighth to test it out, left out the non dairy creamer and doubled the milk powder instead, ( we use non fat milk powder anyway). I added a large handful of hersheys semi sweet choc chips to the mix for the sake of it! hehehe I won't be buying hot chocolate from the supermarket anymore..thanks so much... Allie
I think this is my favorite cocoa mix. The pudding gives it a thickness and creaminess that is sometimes lacking in other recipes. It's also not overly sweet, which is a good thing for me--it lets the cocoa flavor shine through. Thanks!
I cut the recipe in half and filled 8 jars to give to my neighbors. I decorated each jar and attached a coffee scoop to it. I used hazelnut flavored non-dairy creamer. I mixed the batch in the food processor to be sure it was well mixed. I sampled a cup and it was rich and creamy. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for posting.
My family LOVES this recipe. It has more of a deep cocoa flavor than the store-bought varieties (which just take like flavored sugar). My extended family always requests that I bring this along on our camping trips. Thanks for the great (and easy to make) recipe.
nice mix thank you for posting this dee
I used 1/2 vanilla pudding and 1/2 chocolate pudding mix (BTW 4 cups is 7, 4 oz boxes). I gave this as gifts and I tried it myself. It was good, I added hot milk to 4 tbsp mix.
I am feeling under-the-weather today, and needed something soothing. The vanilla pudding mix is SUCH a fantastic idea! Super rich and creamy - almost like you made the cocoa with real cream. A definate new staple!!!
