Recipe : Hot Cocoa Mix

I was making another batch of Hot Cocoa Mix today and realized that I have NEVER given all of you the recipe! What? A travesty of utmost proportions. I shall now remedy that.

What you need:

  • Nesquick (21.8 oz)
  • Lite Non-Dairy Creamer (22 oz)
  • Nonfat Dry Mix (what would make 9 quarts of milk) – I get the 10 pouch pack and use 9 of them.


Pour all of that into a BIG mixing bowl and stir. This is a great activity for little people once they’ve learned not to flip things out of the bowl. The girl usually does this part for me now. Actually, she can do the whole thing.



Then, pour it into whatever airtight container you would like to store it. I keep ours in a big glass jar on the counter. Yummy!

To use, fill your cup 1/3 full of mix and the rest with hot water. All the dry milk and creamer make it taste like you’ve been stirring warm milk on the stove. Oh so good!

This is also a perfect (and easy) gift for the holidays. Put some in a baggie and put it a cute mug. Or, layer it in a small jar with some marshmallows. I’ve given it to people every year.


Do you make your own Hot Cocoa Mix or do you buy it at the store?

  1. Sounds and looks yummy. So needing your sausage ball recipe. Searched the blog and didn’t see it. Can you post that one please?

  2. Add a package of vanilla-or choc instant pudding mix to make it extra creamy. Also-flavored powdered creamers make a great variation. I also add some powdered sugar to the mix to make it a little sweeter! So much better than store bought-well, swiss miss, or nestle anyway! =)

  3. This sounds great, and the variations I just read in Sarah’s post also sound good. I haven’t made this before, so I’m thinking this will make a good Christmas present. Gotta do this!!
