Down here in Dixie, it has been cold. Frigid. Freezing. Which is rare this early in Alabama. When it gets cold, I L.O.V.E. to cuddle up in front of the wood stove with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate. But not just any hot chocolate. It has to be rich, creamy, chocolate-y hot chocolate–which is where this recipe comes into play. It meets all the requirements that a mug of hot chocolate-y goodness should. Rich? check. Sweet? check. Creamy? double check. Chocolate-y? Absolutely!
The amazing thing about this recipe is that you only four ingredients. Four ingredients that we seem to always have on hand at our home….just for this recipe. Just in case we happen to be out of mix when the urge for a cup of this deliciousness hits home :-)
Powdered Dairy Creamer (here I used plain…but it is really good with french vanilla or hazelnut :D)
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Measure four cups of powdered milk and pour into a large bowl…….Add four cups of powder sugar…..
Two cups of unsweetened cocoa powder…..
And one cup powdered dairy creamer……
Stir it all together to combine. Simple. Delicious. Scrumptious. Store in an airtight container so it doesn’t get clumpy :-)
To make a mug of this goodness, warm a coffee mug of milk or water. Add about 1/4 cup of the mix, stir and enjoy!

I am a 22 year old young lady who is redeemed and saved from my sin only by the grace of God. A bibliophile at heart with a love of history who desires to see the Word of God practically applied to all aspects of our daily lives -- in our homes, in the grocery store, in the political realm. I strive to put my jumbled, chaotic thoughts down onto paper -- reducing them into black and white rows, letters, sentences. Into some semblance of sanity. And I share them here with all of you, where I can challenge you, make you think, and cause you to ask questions. I am the oldest of eleven children living the country life in the deep south.
