I saw this on the boards and went right out and bought the ingredients. It sounded so rich with the addition of that pudding mix that I just had to try it. I tasted it today and I must say it is very good. I first tried it using water to make my cup of Hot Cocoa. Then I dumped that and I used milk instead and the real milk made it ohhh so much more rich and velvety. I also added mini marshmallows to my cup. When I make this mix to give as gifts.. my tag will read 1/3 cup of mix to 3/4 cup of very hot milk (water can be substituted for milk if desired).
