Overnight temperatures are predicted to be in the 20's for the most of the upcoming week. Now is the perfect time to indulge in a glass of homemade hot chocolate. Make a double batch of this cocoa mix and store in an airtight container and be prepared for the chill nights of autumn and winter. This mix also makes a much appreciated holiday gift. Package it in a decorative jar and include the directions for use on a printed tag tied on with raffia or curling ribbon.

  • 2 cups nonfat dry milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cocoa
  • dash of salt
Mix all ingredients together well and store in a covered container.
To Use
Stir 1/3 cup of cocoa mix into 1 cup hot steaming water. Stir until completely dissolved. For an even richer drink, stir mix into 1 cup steaming milk.
