Hot Chocolate Mix

*I originally planned to share this recipe tomorrow, but since today is National Cocoa Day, I thought I better post today instead!

It's December in Michigan, so of course that means cold weather. Nothing warms me up on a cold winter day like a cup of hot chocolate!  The only thing better than a cup of hot chocolate is a cup of hot chocolate topped with homemade marshmallows...mmm!

This mix is so easy to put together and it would make a great gift for your friends!  I bought a bunch of adorable little Christmas containers (like the green one above) at Christmas-time last year, not knowing what I would do with them.  Then I recently bought some mini dehydrated marshmallows and these little containers are perfect for them.  Package the hot chocolate mix in a pretty jar, add a little container of marshmallows and you have a great gift.  Now if I could just remember to actually give them to my friends...

Hot Chocolate Mix

You will need:

3 cups powdered milk
1-1/2 cups sugar (if you have vanilla sugar, use that!)
2/3 cup cocoa
1 (3.9 ounce) package chocolate pudding mix

1.  In your food processor or blender (I used my bullet), grind the powdered milk to a fine powder.  (If you don't have a food processor or blender, you can skip this step.  I just do it to achieve a finer consistency.)

2.  In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered milk, sugar, cocoa, and pudding mix.

3.  Store in an airtight container.

To serve, stir 1/3 cup hot chocolate mix into 8 ounces of hot water. 


  1. we made hot cocoa stir sticks from marshmellows dipped in chocolate and crushed candy canes they were yummy

  2. Clomid vs Femara
    Fertility drugs are used to induce ovulation in women who are struggling to conceive. There are a few different types of fertility drugs available, but the two most common are clomid and Femara. Both drugs work in similar ways, but there are a few key differences between them. This article will compare and contrast Clomid and Femara, and help you decide which drug is right for you.
