Instant Hot Cocoa Mix

Recipe by TriciaS

This cocoa is so rich & creamy, my family's favorite. I found it in the Illinois Country Living Magazine January 2001.

I'm surprised no one has yet rated this recipe. This is a very good dark chocolate style hot cocoa mix. It is extremely substantial and not at all watery. I scaled the recipe to 1/4 to see if I would like it or not. I buy Coffee Mate in bulk at Costco, so guessed at the amount and used 1/2 cup. I also sieved the cocoa to get the lumps out. My only comment would be that it didn't seem quite sweet enough. (although some mixes are sickening sweet). I'm going to try one more 1/4 batch with granulated sugar to see which version I prefer. Tricia, thanks for the recipe! You might find it hard to believe, but I know exactly where Hopedale, Illinois is!
