Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix


Because of the icy, blizzard conditions that have nearly shut down all of Dallas, Texas, I thought I would  post my mom’s homemade hot chocolate mix.  This hot chocolate mix is wonderfully delicious, chocolatey, and sweet!  I will never buy a “Swiss Miss” or any other hot chocolate brand because they offer no comparison.  In addition, this hot chocolate mix makes enough to probably last you a half of a year!  Just take a 1/2 cup of hot chocolate mix, and add 1 cup of hot, boiling water.  Stir.  Top with marshmallows or whipped cream, if desired.  For a “nutritional” boost of calcium, use skim milk instead of water.

The recipe comes from the Pigtails and Frog Legs:  A Family Cookbook from Neiman Marcus.  Enjoy and try to stay warm!
