Hot cocoa mix done two ways!

Irisa Raina 9


You can grab a box of the pre~made stuff off the super market shelf, but why?
With just a few simple ingredients and a few minutes of your time you can have a cup of delicious hot cocoa in no time at all.
This mix will take you through a long winter!
Since Michigan winters can be brutal I usually make this in large batches “dark, milk & white chocolate” and send them to all the grand kids! I’ve been making this for years and I will add different toppings in the box. When you live so far from family, you have to keep the grand kids spoiled from a far!

How to Make Hot cocoa mix done two ways!


  • 1Sift each ingredient separately “ but into the same bowl.
  • 2Add the pudding and sift again.
  • 3Once I have all the ingredients sifted, I re-sift everything again. That way you are sure there are no lumps.
  • 4This will keep in an air tight container for several months.
  • 6Place 1/3 cup in a mug and add 2 % hot milk. If you want this even richer use whole milk or ½ & ½ instead of the 2% milk.
  • 8Instant milk chocolate pudding, white chocolate pudding, etc.
  • 10Whipped cream
    Mini marshmallows
    Mini chocolate chips
    Mini white chocolate chips
    Crushed peppermint candy
  • 11Always add a new 1/3 cup measuring cup, and don’t forget to add the instructions!
  • 12And if you are making both dark and white chocolate cocoa at the same time, label them right away because there really isn’t much difference in the color, only in the amazing taste!
