Homemade Creamy Hot Chocolate Mix

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!

Don't you just love the cute spoon?

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 Milk
  • Powder Sugar
  • 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…….DSC_0870Add four cups of powder sugar…..

DSC_0872Two cups of unsweetened cocoa powder…..

DSC_0875And one cup powdered dairy creamer……


Isn't it pretty?

Isn’t it pretty?

Stir it all together to combine. Simple. Delicious. Scrumptious. Store in an airtight container so it doesn’t get  clumpy :-)

DSC_0880To 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!

yummy, yummy, yummy!

yummy, yummy, yummy!

    Hello! What a lovely blog you have!

    I too love hot chocolate and so do my boys! I mean you really can’t go wrong with anything chocolate can you?!
    I have tried a few homemade hot cocoa recipes and haven’t liked them, yours is a bit different, so I’m definitely going to give yours a try! Perfect any time of year if you ask me.
    Thanks for sharing!
    Enjoy your week!
    Blessings, Amy
