This delicious Homemade Instant Hot Chocolate Mix is quick and easy to make. I have made many batches for gifts for the Christmas holidays. Just add 1/3 cup of mix to 8 ounces of hot water for a cup of yummy hot chocolate. This hot chocolate mix makes a great gift packaged in a jar, Christmas tin or coffee cup with directions attached.
Ingredients needed to make Homemade Instant Hot Chocolate Mix:
1-3 pound box Nestle Quick
1/2 to 1 cup powdered sugar
1-8 quart box powdered milk
6 to 8 ounces coffee creamer powder
Directions for making Homemade Instant Hot Chocolate Mix:
Step 1: Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl; make sure you mix it well.
Step 2: To make a cup of hot chocolate, add 1/3 cup of the Homemade Instant Hot Chocolate Mix to a large cup; add 8 ounces of boiling water.
Step 3:This keeps indefinitely in an airtight container.
Use a coffee cup and place hot chocolate mix in a plastic bag with a label giving directions on how to use inside coffee cup. Also add to cup marshmallows, a couple of sticks of wrapped peppermint sticks and a red spoon. Wrap in cellophane paper and tie a pretty bow around the cup. You now have a great gift for any age.
Use a Christmas tin for cocoa mix and add a label for directions.
Use a decorative jar with directions, add bow and attach spoon and peppermint sticks.
Use your imagination for packaging and see the look on the receiver face for this attractive gift.
