This recipe was first made for me by my nephew Nathan, who gave us a jar for Christmas one year. He found the recipe in his 4H cooking materials. I like that it is simple, gluten-free, and contains no funny-flavored creamers. A steamy mug of this cocoa will top any you buy at the local coffee shop.
6 cups powdered milk (check the label to make sure it is gluten-free)
1 cup cocoa
1 and 1/2 cups sugar (I like organic cane sugar)
Mix dry ingredients together in a big bowl. Store in a decorative jar.
When ready to serve, scoop 1/4 to 1/3 cup mix into your favorite mug. Pour in boiling water and stir. Garnish with whipped cream or marshmallows. Enjoy! Makes great gifts, too!
