Homemade Mexican Hot Chocolate Mix

Annacia *


I like to keep some pre-mixed things on hand. Especially things like this that have no use by dates. I keep it in a snug lidded tea can in the pantry, it never goes off as is always on hand whenever the hot chocolate mood strikes. It's diabetic friendly if you use Splenda to sweeten as I do.
