Homemade hot chocolate is the stuff memories are made of. Memories of sitting on the old wooden barstool at the counter in our kitchen as a little girl of six years old. On winter evenings, my two sisters and I would line up at the counter and reach for the marshmallows.
Curly, blonde ringlets hanging down my back . . . a cup of hot cocoa in my little hands . . . and fluffy marshmallows floating on top – just begging me to dip my spoon into them.
I love making memories with my children! And we’ve been making lots of memories this winter with our Homemade Hot Chocolate.
Warning = this is not a whole-food, THM-approved, a healthy food, or a non-sugar item! 🙂 (This is my disclaimer.)
But it is so incredibly delicious and wonderful as a treat on cold winter days.
This is a dry mix that you simply add boiling water to.
Warm. Delicious. Sweet. Creamy.
All in one cup.
Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
40.7 oz. (1 big can) Nesquik or Hershey’s Chocolate Milk Powder
11 oz. dry creamer
51.2 oz. (2 — 25.6 oz boxes) dry milk powder
6 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Mix together. Use 1/3 – 1/2 cup of hot chocolate mix in coffee mug. Add boiling water and marshmallows.
Notes: To make it creamier and less sweet — use less sugar and more dry creamer. You can also use homemade chocolate milk mix in place of the Nesquik.
