Project Homemade Christmas-- Cocoa Recipe

   One thing I plan on making for Christmas gifts is homemade cocoa mix. I put the mix into ziplock baggies and then into an embellished lunch bag. I fold over the top of the bag and hole punch it twice then tie a ribbon or string through to close the bag. Remember to put a tag on the tie to give the recipient the directions for use. This is a quick recipe or inexpensive gift that is just perfect for the cooler weather!

Homemade Cocoa Mix

1 1/2 cups nonfat instant milk powder
1 cup powdered coffee creamer
1 ¼ cup sugar or Splenda
2/3 cup cocoa powder

Add all of the above ingredients into a blender or food processor and mix until blended well. Store in a ziplock baggie or jar. Use 3-4 T per 8 oz. hot water. I love having this mix on hand for my family during the blustery cold winter! So lovely and warming!

Homemade Blessings to you all,

  2. Hi there! Found this post on the Homemade Monday's blog hop. I can't wait to make this and take it with us when we do fall camping. I imagine I'll pour a little mint or butterscotch schnapps in mine, especially while around a campfire :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by Kelli! "Special" hot cocoa by the campfire sounds wonderful!
    Hope you stop back real soon!
