Homemade hot chocolate mix

It has been so cold here that I decided to mix up a batch of homemade hot
chocolate. It is super simple and my teens love it.
In a large bowl mix together 1 lb of powdered suger, one lb. of powered milk, 1 lb. of choc. mix drink, and one lb. of coffee creamer.

Mix it all together...


Place it into a nice jar or container...and you are ready to go. We usually put 2 teaspoons in each cup...but of course you can put in to taste.
This mix disappears on cold days...I love adding a few mini marshmellows and there you have it. ( I am mixing up a double batch as you can see from the pictures)
I have been working on my Moonlit Garden and hope to have it completed this weekend. I am planning on starting another fall design before I move on to Christmas so I had better get it finished soon. LOL
I know that JoAnne Fabrics is having a sale on the DMC floss this weekend. It is buy 3 get one free...I plan on stocking up a little but the last few things I have stitched I have used the Weeks thread...I love it but I don't love the cost. The Christmas design I am starting will have to be in DMC because it is a big design and it would cost to much to use any other threads!
I will be around to visit all of you. Be blessed.

First of all Dianntha thanks for visiting my blog. That chair you liked was one of the first pieces of furniture my hubby and I bought when we got married 24 years ago this month. It started out covered with an ugly burgundy silky print . My girlfriends father recovered it for me a couple of years ago. I just love it now.

Now on to your delicious sounding hot chocolate mix recipe. I will definitely be making it for Christmas. I made some last year to go with some gift baskets I put together but the recipie called for so many other ingredients. This sounds simple and delicious.

Enjoy your weekend and stop and visit me again.
Hugs, AMY

Dianntha, I use this same recipe mix for hot chocolate - it's a crowd pleaser at my house too. Have a great weekend. ~Ann

Oh if I were able to drink milk? yum
I use soy and make a syrup but that sounds so yummy. I used to make something like that with instant coffee added for camping trips.

Yum, yum, yummy...
I'm not a good cook but I feel like trying this one...
I can't believe you're almost finished with your Moonlit Garden! It's quite a large design!
I had to smile at your comment on the price of threads. Do you know that, in France, a skein of DMC sells about 1.70 dollars? That's 1.15 to 1.25 euros!!!
That's why american online shops are a blessing for us, French stitchers...
Hugs!

Will have to try this! DD puts coffee creamer in her hot chocolate anyway, so might as well have it part of the mix. :)

I LOVE hot chocolate on a cold damp day...which is what we had lots of lately. However, today was rather nice and tomorrow should be more of Indian summer. Enjoy!
