Cocoa Mix


Somewhere along the line I posted about making cocoa mix for the winter. English Cocoa Lover asked for the recipe so here it is. It is so easy and so good. I have been making this for about 23 years and got the recipe from my mom so who knows how long she made it.
Cocoa Mix
2lb can Hershey Cocoa (Nesquick or the like)
8 quarts powder milk (left in the powder form)
medium size coffee creamer (powder form)
2 cups powder sugar (optional)
I never have added the powder sugar. It just makes it sweeter and I think it is sweet enough. Mix all these ingredients together, it makes a lot!!!!! Store in a large container. Add to hot water or hot coffee, to taste. I usually use 2-3 scoops (coffee size scoops) according to how I want the chocolate taste to be. You will never buy store mix again. This stuff is good.
I hope you enjoy this. Let me know. Dot

We have a huge container full of this in the kitchen right now! I remember my mother making it every winter and now I'm passing on the tradition to my kids - it is the BEST!

We do this too. It's true, you'll never go back to store bought. We also add just a smidgen of cayenne pepper too. Not enough to make it spicy, just a little to bring out the extra chocolate taste. Makes it a little bit warmer. Yummo.
