Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe – SO GOOD!
With only 4 ingredients you'll be asking yourself why you haven't made a Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe before. I've been making this recipe for my family and for gift giving for over 30 years so believe me when I say it's a tried and true recipe. :-). And with it starting to get chilly outside, this is the perfect time to make up a batch!
Ingredients needed for Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe:
- nestle Nesquik
- original coffee creamer
- powdered sugar
- non-fat dry milk
How do you make Homemade hot chocolate mix?
This couldn't be easier. Grab a huge (and, I mean ginormous bowl). Dump the Nesquik, non-fat dry milk, coffee creamer and powdered sugar into your large bowl. Then, stir and stir and stir some more until all the ingredients are very well combined.
How to store hot cocoa mix
After you have it all mixed up go ahead and scoop it out into several different containers.
Hint! Don't throw away the Nesquik or coffee creamer containers. These work great to store the mixture.
How do you use homemade cocoa mix?
When you're ready for a steaming cup, pour about 3 – 4 tablespoons hot chocolate mix in a mug and stir in 8 – 10 ounces of steaming hot water. Top with whipped cream, mini marshmallows and sprinkles, if desired.
These make a perfect gift!
If I'm going to gift these to someone, I like to use pint size mason jars. You can either fill the whole jar with hot chocolate mix or alternate a bit of the mix and a few mini marshmallows. Tie on a cute ribbon with a sweet tag giving instructions on how to serve and you have the perfect gift for anyone on your list. 🙂 You could also make some homemade hot chocolate bombs to give along with the mix – how fun!
This recipe makes 10-12 pint size jars or about 6 quart size jars.
