Here are the ingredients: powdered milk (dried milk), powdered sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, white chocolate chips, and salt.
To the bowl of a food processor or blender, add the powdered milk, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, …
… white chocolate chips, and salt.
To serve, add 3 heaping teaspoons of the hot cocoa mix to 1 cup hot water or milk. If you add milk it will be VERY creamy. If you add water it will still be creamy. I choose to save the calories from the milk and add more whipped topping.
Stir to combine and completely dissolve the cocoa mix powder.
Top with a generous portion of whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and/or mini marshmallows. Did you know they now make the super tiny, firm marshmallows reminiscent of the processed package hot cocoa packets? Brilliant! I bought the chocolate flavored, but they have the standard white too.
Check out how creamy this! It’s worth the 5 minutes to make this Creamy Hot Cocoa Mix. Make double or triple batch and keep it in an airtight container for the entire cold weather season (3-4 months). Add an extra special *adult* touch by adding in a bit of peppermint schnapps.
