Food Gifts #2~ Homemade Hot Chocolate

Can you say yummy?

I had no idea that something could taste SO much better! No wonder I was never really a fan of the instant stuff in a packet. This is so easy and inexpensive! I bought all the ingredients for apx $12 and made a HUGE batch. apx 20 ~1/2 c servings. I looked at lots of recipes and kinda blended them all together and came up with this. Feel free to change it up to your taste.

1 box (9.6 oz) instant nonfat dry milk
1 box (8 0z) cocoa (I used Hershey’s Special Dark)
1(15 oz) Non-dairy creamer (I used French Vanilla)
3 cups sugar
6 dashes of cayenne pepper
This filled 2 quart storage bags.
Mix 3 Tb with 1 cup of hot milk. Freaking Delish!!
