When hot chocolate takes 30 seconds to make, you might start drinking a lot more of it. We won't hold it against you if you buy the packets of Swiss Miss or Carnation, but here's a good recipe if you're a diehard do-it-yourselfer.
- 1/3 cup cocoa
- 1 1/3 cup instant nonfat dry milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons powdered non-dairy creamer
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Optional: instant coffee
- Mix all ingredients and store in a zip lock baggie.
- To one cup hot water, add 1/3 cup dry mix (about four to six heaping tablespoons) and stir well. Add a little instant coffee for mocha. Life is good.
