My friend, Sarah, sent in this little gem of a project. This is such a simple and satisfying homemade gift for friends, family, coworkers, etc., especially when packaged in pretty little jars and paired with a Christmas mug, as Sarah has done. Bravo!
- 6 cups instant nonfat dry milk
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- 1 c. + 2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
- mini marshmallows (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Put into containers and decorate. Attach instructions: “Measure 1/2 c. cocoa mix into mug. Stir in 1 c. hot water or milk.”
I made mine using milk–very yummy! You could probably get by with using a little less than 1/2 c. of mix because it was really rich. Also, I used generic ingredients, and it turned out great!
