Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

It seems like the whole darn country's been in one heck of a cold snap lately! We had our first good snow last week, and when it snows I want two things: soup for supper and hot chocolate before I go to bed. Since I've started being "domestic," I've kind of become a hot chocolate snob. Swiss Miss just don't cut it. Neither does Nestle Quick. I've got something so much better! It's super-easy to whip up a batch, and it makes a ton!
My brother-in-law, sister-in-law, and stepmom Theresa were recipients of some of this yummy mix for Christmas. To make it, you simply dump 1/3 of a cup of the mix in a cup, then fill with boiling water. No need to heat milk, because it's made with dry milk powder. And it's oh so creamy because of the addition of some chocolate fudge pudding mix. A cup of this, two giant marshmallows on top, and a good book are the perfect things to settle in with on a nice wintery night!

Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
6 1/2 cups powdered milk
5 oz. Cook & Serve chocolate fudge pudding mix
1 cup powdered chocolate drink mix (such as Nestle Quik)
1/2 cup non-dairy creamer (French vanilla is good)
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Put all ingredients into food processor. Process until well blended and powdered milk is a fine consistency.
For one cup of hot chocolate, use 1/3 cup mix. Dissolve mix with boiling water.


  1. this sounds wonderful! I'm definitely gonna have to fix some up for this cold winter

  2. I actually had some Swiss Miss the other night, and at the time it wasn't so bad...but now it does seem inadequate!
