Hot Chocolate made like Mom...

This Hot Chocolate Mix recipe is my moms. It has been a family tradition in the Selph house (my parent's house)for as long as I can remember. I have now made it a part of my own family's Christmas season, and love it!

It is also great for giving as gifts. Teachers, friends, family, they all love it!

Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe:

It makes a whole lot so you will need a huge bowl to mix it in.

1 1 lb. box powdered sugar
1 1 lb. jar coffee mate
8 qt. box non-fat dry milk
1 cup cocoa
2 cups granulated sugar

Mix well. Store in a large covered canister. When ready to drink fill mug 1/3 full with mix and top off with hot water. Add marshmallows (optional), stir and enjoy. (For my young children I usually add a little cold milk so it is not too hot)

When giving as a gift I always put it in a small mason jar topped with ribbon and a tag telling how to mix it when ready to drink. But I am sure there are lots of beautiful ways to package it.

I hope that this can find a way into your homes for all to enjoy this Christmas Season! Merry Christmas!
