I don't know about the weather where you are, but here in Vermont, tomorrow's HIGH temperature is -1 F. Today is a relatively balmy 10. Yipes.
This calls for hot cocoa.
Hot, sweet, chocolately, but not too decadent, so I can feel ok giving this to the kiddos after a cold romp in the snow. And easy! I put this together in less than 5 minutes, and it will give me about 20 servings of cocoa, I think.
Hot Cocoa Mix
2 1/2 c nonfat dry milk
1 c sugar
1/2 c unsweetened cocoa
1/2 c non-dairy creamer
Combine ingredients in an air tight container.
Shake well to mix.
To serve, put 3-4 Tbsp in a mug and pour in boiling water. Mix well. If desired, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. It makes a difference. Enjoy!
