Fall. Cooler weather. Iced teas and lemonades are put on the back shelf and thoughts start running towards warmer drinks.
One of my favorites is a flavored hot cocoa, mixed with coffee instead of water, using a cinnamon stick as a stirrer.
I make a big batch of flavored hot cocoa mix so it will last me all winter long, until the iced teas and lemonades make their appearance again. I also use it for Gift Basket Goodies!
Rich Hot Cocoa Mix – big batch:
1 (22 oz.) container flavored dry coffee creamer
1 (4 lb.) box non-fat instant dry milk
1 (32 oz.) bag powdered sugar
2 (28 oz.) containers chocolate milk mix
Sift (or put through blender) dry milk to make into powder. Add all ingredients to a large garbage bag (make sure it’s unscented!). Firmly hold onto top of bag and turn bag upside down and all around until all ingredients are mixed. Pour into containers.
To make the hot cocoa, mix 1 part mix with 2 – 3 parts water.
