Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix - Yum!

Have you ever looked at all of the ingredients in a packet of instant hot cocoa?  There are tons of ingredients, some of which are unpronounceable.  I have a recipe for making your own instant hot cocoa mix, with only three ingredients.  Super simple, very yummy!  It's getting to be that time of year when my kids are coming in from playing outside and asking for a cup of hot cocoa.  This recipe is kid approved!  It is also a thrifty, easy way to make hot cocoa.  I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine does!

Instant Hot Cocoa Mix

1 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/3 cups powdered milk

In a large bowl mix powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and powdered milk together until evenly blended.  Store mixture in a covered container.

To make hot cocoa, use 1/4 cup mixture per mug.  Add hot water, mix well.  Top with whatever you desire - whipped cream, marshmallows, etc.  Or just drink it plain - that's good too!  For an interesting twist, add coffee instead of hot water for a simple, yummy mocha drink.
