With the first cold front of the year coming through the North I started thinking of what would be nice on a cold day and what better then hot cocoa? As always I prefer making my own and sharing is always a blessing. I have given this as gifts for yrs. now and everyone just loves it. This recipe can be jarred and decorated with ribbons , bows and even candy canes and given as gifts. You could also package it in a sealed bag and place in a seasonal coffee mug and decorate as well. Dollar Tree has some really cute mugs over the Holidays which will make this gift very affordable.
2 C. Non-fat Dried Milk
3/4 C. Sugar
1/2 C. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1 C. Mini Marshmallows
Mix all ingredients and store in air tight container or bag.
To Use simply place 2-3 heaping tbs. into mug and add boiling water. When decorating be sure to include this on a cute little tag or something so the person receiving the gift knows how much to use.
