Homemade Hot Cocoa
Hot Cocoa is a big thing for us. We always take a big thermos with us when we go to look at Christmas lights each year. This year we will be taking a helicopter tour of Christmas lights, should be exciting. Ransome is really looking forward to it. In case you would like to take a helicopter tour- http://www.xmasflights.biz/ -that is if you are in the Tulsa area. Check in your area, there maybe helicopter tours there also. Back to the hot cocoa, we drink lots of it around here. Every morning there is hot tea and cocoa going in our kitchen. In the evenings we light a fire in the fireplace and drink cocoa too. I think this recipe is the best! I have read others but this one beats all the rest! Give it a try!
1- 20 ounce container of powder milk(any brand is fine)
1- large container of Coffee Creamer, not sure of size but it the large container in my grocery store, not Sam's large size( I use Coffee Mate here, I think it tastes better.)
2 pounds powdered sugar
2-8 ounce containers of Cocoa, not sweetened(I use Hershey, easy to find and tastes good too)
1 bag of chocolate chips( I use Toll House semi-sweet but it is up to you.)
1 bag of white chocolate chips
Dump all ingredients in a large sealed container(Tupperware). Shake very well. Make sure the chips are mixed all through your mix, not just on the bottom.
Measure 1/2 cup, ( I leave a 1/2 cup measuring cup in the Tupperware) place into a 12 ounce mug. Microwave milk on high (we use whole milk) until desired hotness is reached, then stir in mix. I know this has powder milk already but your kiddos will get a double dose of calcium this way! We add marshmallows and whipped cream to the top.
