I loved this cocoa mix! I gave it to my all my friends for Christmas. It's a delicious cinnamony taste to hot chocolate. Definitely the best mix on this website.
I made this twice - the first time, I followed the directions exactly, using hot milk and 2 Tbsp. of the dry mix. I thought it tasted nice, but not as creamy as I had hoped. Then, I tried it again, adding the 2 cups dry milk powder as suggested by the author in her update comment - and I again mixed the cocoa mix with hot milk. The result was a much smoother, creamier taste. I also added an ingredient to the mix: 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips, which added more rich cocoa flavor. The mini chips melt as you stir the cocoa mix into the hot milk. For the cocoa powder, I used unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder.
I am a fan of spicy hot cocoa, and this one really made the grade! The rest of the family has to make do with cocoa mix, since they prefer it plain, and I get to have this all to myself. I left out the cloves and added some nutmeg instead.
