Do you remember the Homemade Nesquick recipe I shared with you recently? Well, it has been so cold here my kids have been hooked on hot chocolate. I want to share how I changed my Homemade Nesquick into Homemade hot chocolate mix. It is SO easy! All you have to do is add powdered milk. Adding the powdered milk makes this hot chocolate nice and creamy and oh so yummy.
This is WAY cheaper than the boxed variety (and tastes better). A typical 10-count box of cocoa will coast you about $1 (if you get it on sale). You can make this homemade hot chocolate mix for under $1 and it will give you over 20 servings! Plus, there is something to be said about knowing ALL of the ingredients in your cocoa. 😉
