We love hot cocoa on these cold winter nights. This mix went together fast and is a good source of calcium. It warms you when its cold outside.

approximately 16 cups of cocoa


10 Min


No-Cook or Other


6 c
instant, nonfat, dry milk
1 1/2 c
cocoa, unsweetened
1 1/4 c
granulated sugar
1 3/4 c
instant non dairy creamer
3 Tbsp
instant coffee powder
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp
freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients until well incorporated. This can be done in a food processor also, but you'll have to process smaller amounts of the ingredients at a time.
To make a mug of cocoa, place 1/2 cup of the mix into a large mug. Bring a cup (8 oz.) of water or milk to a boil. Pour water over the dry mix and whisk with a small whisk until well blended and frothy. Garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Marshmallows and a candy cane stirrer are also fun add-ins.
