This is a superb recipe and I think it is nicely sweet, even with the addition of the marshmallows. I have made this to give with gifts of mugs and candy cane "stirrers" for Christmas for coworkers and they loved it!

I made this today after getting help on the Cooking Q & A Board with regard to conversions of the milk powder in quarts into cups and grams. I halved this recipe and prepared this mix. I used 4 cups of Nido milk powder, 2 1/4 cups of Coffeemate, 2 cups and a little over 1/4 cup of Nesquik chocolate milk powder and a little less than 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. This made a total of 9 cups of Hot Chocolate Mix for me. Initially I used 1/3 cup of this mix for a little less than a cup of boiling water. On stirring it and sipping it, I found it to be not as sweet as I would normally have liked it to be. I added 3 tbsps. more of the mix, stirred and then had it. It was fine then. Topped with marshmallows, this will surely become more sweeter. Since I don't have those on hand, I used more of the mix. About 1-2 marshmallows should be fine for a cup of this mix, IMO. Thanks for the recipe! Please note: Just to help anyone who wishes to try this mix in future, here is something: 454gms. of Coffeemate = 4 3/4 cups 454 gms. of Nesquik = 4 cups and a little over 1/2 cup 8 quarts of Nido milk powder = 8 cups Powdered sugar, ofcourse, is given clearly as 2/3 cup, so that should not be a problem for anyone.
