Best Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix 1 Picture


  • One 25.6oz box of instant nonfat dry milk
  • 4 C Nestle Quick (chocolate milk flavor)
  • One pound powdered sugar
  • 2 C powdered creamer
  • 2 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Step 1

Simply mix all of the ingredients together in a very large bowl. Divide into more bowls if a large enough bowl isn't available. This recipe makes an extremely large batch, but it's worth the trouble! A large, lidded bowl like the 26 cup capacity Tupperware Fix-n-mix bowl is ideal. Instead of stirring with a spoon, one can simply throw all the ingredients in the bowl, attach the lid tightly, and shake until everything is evenly mixed.

Fill one third of a mug with the cocoa mix in its powdered form, then fill the rest of the mug with hot water. Even using water, this cocoa is incredibly rich and delicious, but for a truly decadent experience, mix hot milk into the powder.

Each full batch makes 19C hot cocoa mix. Large mason jars hold 2 1/2-3C. Each full batch makes 6 large jars.
