Hershey's Special Dark Homemade Instant Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe
Wow it is cooling off fast! So between the cold and my insane obsession with chocolate, I immediately start craving hot chocolate. Usually we buy the box of instant little envelopes, but I found that we go through them too fast. A lot of times they are just not as "chocolatey" as I want. Homemade hot cocoa can take too long unless you have a pre made mix, which is what we made here.
For us, making it homemade is not only tastier, but cheaper. Yes, you can get the small 6 envelope box for $1 , but here that would be gone in two days. The only ingredient I noticed was really expensive was the dry milk.... oh boy! The large box (about the size of a cereal box) was $18 !
Instead, we used non dairy creamer. After trying the hot cocoa tonight, I actually like it better. So if you go through a lot of hot chocolate during the season, try this recipe, it is easy , less expensive and you can add an extra scoop if you want a more decadent, rich cocoa.
