I have always just bought Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate and while I think they have mastered the hot chocolate world, I wanted to take a stab at making my own mix.  And I must say, I hit it out of the park! 

Dry milk isn’t a common store item in today’s world but it’s a must for this creamy hot chocolate mix. You can find it in the baking section of most stores.

Combine all of the dry ingredients and store in an air tight container.

YES, I still make it with milk even though I am using dry milk in the mix. That is what makes it creamier!

Top with marshmallows and enjoy!

I double the recipe and create some Christmas gifts.  You can grab some of THESE mason jars for perfect gift-giving!  And even better, I’ve attached a FREE printable for you to download some tags that are ready to go for you!  Simply print them off on cardstock and attach them to your mason jar with ribbon!

Presents don’t get much easier than that!

To serve, heat up a cup of milk and mix in two heaping tablespoons of the hot chocolate powder.  Top with marshmallows and enjoy.
