How To make Your Own Hot Chocolate/Cocoa Mix
A Cup of Hot Chocolate With Marshmallows And Chocolate Shavings
Bulk Hot Chocolate Mix
Save your hard earned dollars this winter by making your own instant hot chocolate.
I make a batch of this instant hot chocolate mix, every winter. By doing so I save quite a bit of money, and am sure to always have some handy when the grand kids come over. A real treat for the kids, myself and anyone needing a nice steaming cup of hot chocolate when coming in out of the cold.
I love sitting in front of the cozy fireplace with a toasty fire going and a delicious cup of hot chocolate in my favorite mug. The grand kids huddled around sipping on theirs as we read from a favorite story book or watch a favorite movie..The grand kids usually like to watch Frozen or the Polar Express. I happy watching any children's movie or a classic Christmas story.
Its easy to make and the ingredients are readily available at any grocery store or market.
I keep the biggest part of the hot chocolate mix in a large container in the pantry, but I also keep a jar of it handy, on the kitchen counter for easy access. A teapot simmering on the stove ready to pour in to our favorite mugs.
Gift Giving Idea
This can also be made up into smaller packages for gift giving...Place in a Mason jar, tie it up with a beautiful bow ..twine or raffia, tuck in a candy cane...and a cute little tag with instructions to make individual servings.

I can only speak for myself of course, but for me topping off hot chocolate with a huge dollop of whip cream, a few mini marshmallows or a couple of big marshmallows is necessary, a sprinkle of cinnamon a dash of chocolate or rainbow shots, chocolate shavings or maybe a peppermint stick or candy cane.
