Make Your Own Instant Cocoa Mix - Homemade Substitute

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Trisha W

This is nice to have on hand for teens after a game, or for any group who is coming to visit. Cheaper than buying the individual envelopes. Also, easy to put together.

Thanks Trisha for a great hot chocolate. I usually guess at the amount of milk powder and chocolate and it is never just right. Now I just scoop it out and I'm set to go :-). I used skim milk powder and 1 cup of drinking chocolate - I might add another 1/4 cup of chocolate next time I make it up though. So glad I found this recipe.
