Amy’s Favorite Cocoa Mix

This is the only cocoa mix I make anymore- it is perfect. It would make a wonderful holiday gift too!

Amy’s Favorite Cocoa Mix 

4       cups  nonfat dry milk powder
1 1/2     cups sugar
1     cup non-dairy coffee creamer
2/3     cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 (4     ounce) package instant chocolate fudge pudding (I just use the Aldi chocolate pudding mix)

1. Place all ingredients in large bowl.
2. Stir together with a wire whisk.
3. Place mix in a sifter and sift to make a really fine powder.
4. This really make sure everything is really combined.
5. Store in a sealed container.
6. Add 1/2 cup of mix to an 8oz.mug filled with water (If you don’t like a rich cup of cocoa, stick to 1/4 cup of the mix)

    Amy, how many cups will this mix make? I am making cocoa mix as a gift for the staff at my kids’ school. There are 70 staff members and I’d like to make enough for one or two cups each, depending on the cost. Thanks!

    Kara- I am going to guess-timate here because I have never really counted it out.

    I add 1/4 cup per mug and it looks like it will make about eight cups total of cocoa mix so that would probably give you about thirty cups total. You would probably want to triple the recipe for the staff members.

    If you get the ingredients at Aldi, it isn’t too bad, but the dry milk prices have gone up to about $14 a box.

    I hope that helps!!

    [...] a mix of Starbucks-style music, or a book of coffee recipes. This same idea could be applied to a cocoa drinker or a tea drinker, just include accessories that go along with that [...]
