Hot Cocoa Mix
November 30, 2001

I altered this recipe slightly and I LOVE it! I use a large plastic punch bowl to mix really need a BIG bowl and this works perfectly. I use 10 cups milk powder, 6 cups powdered sugar, 2 cups cocoa powder, 1 3/4 cups "Royale" Cremora, 2 envelopes of Stephens sipping cocoa mix, and 1 bag of mini-marshmallows. It makes 8 pint jars. Because of the marshmallows, you need to "tap" the jar to take out air pockets. I make a nice variation using 2 1/2 tsp. of Cinnamon with an extra 1/2 cup powdered sugar. I call it "Gourmet Christmas Cocoa". I decorate the top with fabric and raffia, add a cute tag and sell these jars at Craft Fairs for $4.50 each. Actual cost works out to about $1.80 per jar, but the jar itself is the most expensive. I use Penzeys Vietnamese Cinnamon and Penzeys Dutch Process Cocoa Powder. Thanks for a fabulous base recipe! I may try regular granulated sugar as most powdered sugars have cornstarch in them. Have a look at the confectioners sugar box next time you see one in the store. Thanks again...this is wonderful! :0)
