Hot Cocoa Mix

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Christmas baking is finally under way in our house. I was slacking, but with good reason. If I bake too early I eat it…so I was trying to use a little wisdom this year. Ean and I kicked off our baking by making hot cocoa mix for his teachers at church. It was a fun project for us to do together, he helped with everything…except the labels…he ran off during that part.

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Recipe from All Recipes

10 cups dry milk powder

4 3/4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar

1 3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa powder

1 3/4 cups powdered non-dairy creamer

In a large mixing bowl, combine milk powder, confectioner’s sugar, cocoa powder, and creamer. Stir till thoroughly combined. Store cocoa mixture in an airtight container. Makes about 15 cups mix, or enough for about 45 servings.

We bought our jars at Hobby Lobby. We topped our cocoa mix with mini chocolate chips & marshmallows, added ribbon and a label and they were ready to be given away.

For 1 serving, place 1/3 cup cocoa mixture in a coffee cup or mug, and add 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Top with dollop of whipped cream or a few marshmallows, if desired.
