Hot Cocoa Mix...*
1 C. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 C. sugar (or 1 1/2 C. if you like it sweeter)
3 C. nonfat powdered milk
dash of salt
mini marshmallows (optional)
Combine all of the ingredients (except mallows) in a large bowl, until thoroughly mixed.
Put into desired giving containers, top with mini mallows, if desired and attach with these instrunctions...Add 3 Tbsp. cocoa mix to 6 oz. hot water, stir and enjoy!
Another thing I love to do is to attach a candy cane and on the instructions add "stir with candy cane". It's makes a yummy peppermint hot cocoa!
You can also use several containers for this. This year I used a variety of different containers; cellophane bags, jars, tins, just about anything and decorate it as you'd like. Another idea I like is to fill a cellophane bag with the mix and put it into a ceramic mug. This is a really fun and simple gift to give. The mix makes alot but, I doubled the recipe to be sure I had enough for everyone I wanted to give it to, and the leftover, we'll drink!
Tomorrow, I'll share my recipe for biscotti!
