I found a really simple homemade cocoa recipe a while back. I wish I could give credit, but it's been so long since I saved this. I'm sorry.
Hot Chocolate Mix (20 gifts)
3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
2 cups powdered sugar
1½ cups cocoa powder (Dutch-processed preferred, but regular okay)
1½ cups white chocolate chips (or chopped white chocolate)
¼ teaspoon salt
1. Whisk together all ingredients in a large bowl. Working in two batches, pulse the ingredients in a food processor until the chocolate is finely ground. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
2. To make hot cocoa, put 1/3 cup of the cocoa mix in a mug and stir in 1 cup of hot milk. Top with whipped cream or miniature marshmallows.
* I got about 15 out of this recipe. I split the mix into 5 cups (3- 1/3 servings)
Next up... tea time!
