Easy {Delicious} Gift


A couple of years ago I posted here about a great hot cocoa recipe, and I've pulled it out again this year as simple Christmas gift.

It's from the 2008 America's Test Kitchen cookbook, and is super simle to make (and even better to drink). I did a double batch that filled 12 jelly jars perfectly. It'd be cute to pair it with a mug or two and maybe some marshmallows?

Anyway, just thought I'd share. Hope you are enjoying the holiday season!

Best Ever Hot Cocoa Mix

3 cups nonfat dry milk

2 cups confectioners sugar

1 1/2 cups Dutch-processed cocoa (the best we could find was Hershey's "blend" of regular and dutched cocoa)

1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix the ingredients in a food processor or blender (may need to split it into two batches). Mix 1/3 cup mix with 1 cup hot milk (that's supposed to be key to it's deliciousness...vs. water). It's really rich, so we've done it with 1/4 cup mix and it's just as good.
