I make a special treat for my family every year around this time. No, not for the holidays, but just because the air is beginning to get colder and they all need something warm in their tummies before they head off to bed. It's homemade hot chocolate mix, and it's way easy.
4 cups powdered milk
1 cup instant creamer (non-flavored)
1 cup powdered sugar
2 1/2-3 cups powdered chocolate milk mix
Combine ingredients and place in a sealable container.
Add 1/4-1/3 cup of mix in a cup and add hot water. It's rich, creamy, and cheaper in the long run as you usually have enough ingredients to make a double batch.
This is my favorite recipe that was handed down to me from my grandmother and my aunts.
