Homemade Instant Hot Chocolate Mix

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Sarah Chana

Another from the Living on a Dime website. A great makeahead for those cold winter days. To make it dairy free, just substitute soymilk powder for both the dry milk and the nondairy creamer.

Very nice! I ran the mix thru the blender before packaging it up, seems to make a smoother drink. The kids gave it the thumbs up! I might add more pudding mix next time, I did use the sugar free kind, so maybe there is a taste difference there. Thank you for sharing!
