There is nothing better on a cold winter day than to come inside to a cup of hot chocolate that warms the bones right up.
But did you know that the majority of hot chocolate mixes on the market have that dreaded partially hydrogenated fat in it?
Who would have thought they would add that to even a powdered mix.
Well, I found an alternative to that - I make my own mixture.
It is very simple, and I think it is even a better value than the packet kinds.
I know it is certainly better for you - the powdered milk I use is fat free.
I use three packets of the 1 quart dry powered milk.
To that I add a 1/2 cup of cocoa powder and 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar.
Mix it very well and keep it in an airtight container.
Put 3-4 heaping teaspoons in a mug and add boiling water.
A tad of milk to cool it down and a spoonful of marshmallow floated on top makes it just perfect.
A delicious treat just right for this time of year!
