Put all of the ingredients into a large bowl, and mix with a spoon until well blended. Storing the blend in an air-tight container keeps it tasting good.

Heat your water and spoon up 5 teaspoons of hot cocoa mix into a mug and add about a teaspoon of skim milk. Using the teaspoon, blend the milk and dry cocoa mix together until it forms a smooth, thick cocoa sludge in the bottom of the mug. now add your hot water and blend thoroughly.
This trick of adding milk and creating a cocoa sludge creates a smoother cup of cocoa, than if you simply added the cocoa mix to hot water.
