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.
