Cousin Caroline's Instant Hot Chocolate Mix

Marsha Gardner


Living in cold and snowy western NY and enjoying snowmobiling in the winter our extended family went through a ton of hot chocolate in a winter. My husband's cousin shared this inexpensive alternative to store bought mix with me and I have used it for almost 40 years.

I like to put in a pretty jar for Christmas gifts.
