I was wondering if there is a way to make it so that the mix does not include powdered milk or dry milk. I'm okay with adding normal milk to the mix though. I think I got something using my (mostly nonexistent) math skills, but before buying the cocoa, can someone try this thingy out? TO MAKE MIX: 3/4 cup sugar + 3/4 cup cocoa TO MAKE: Add 1/2 - 1 cups of milk + 3/4 cups of water into 1-2 tablespoons of mix Thanks!
We really enjoyed this! I took Pamela's suggestion and added 3 extra tablespoons of sugar, which was perfect. For 2/3 of the recipe use: 3 and 1/3 cups powdered milk, 1/2 cup sugar (I added an extra 2 tablespoons sugar), and 1/2 cup cocoa. For 1/3 of the recipe use: 1 and 2/3 cups powdered milk, 1/4 cup sugar (I added an extra 1 tablespoons sugar), and 1/4 cup cocoa. A great recipe, thanks.
This is really really good! I did steps 1 and 4 and omitted steps 2 and 3. I halved this recipe and tried it out today. I used Nido milk powder, sugar and Hintz Dutch Processed Cocoa powder. I had a mug of this with dinner tonight and I really loved every drop. Thank you so much. I'll be giving away boxes of this mix this X'mas to some less fortunate people than myself. Thanks, a million times, for sharing this wonderful tasting mix. Specially around this winter time of the year, it's all the more nice to share this wonderful mix. Even a single mug of this, makes a meal on its own, it is very filling and really calms you down if you've been on an emotional roller coaster. Thank You from the bottom of my heart to you for sharing this recipe.

I liked this recipe alot, and followed some of the suggestions from other reviewers: I used Spenda instead of sugar and mixed dark and milk chocolate cocoa to bring this up a notch. I also made it with almond milk instead of water when I made it, which added richness. Nice recipe that's easy to make and a great gift idea.

I've been enjoying recipezaar for awhile now and have added many new recipes to my list of family favorites. I'm newly single and have four young children, so I look for fast, easy, kid friendly stuff. But I enjoy cooking and like to show off a little now and then, too.
