During the winter months, homemade hot chocolate is a favorite at the Savage household. In fact, when my kids’ friends come over, they always ask, “Mrs. Savage, can we please have some of your famous hot chocolate!” I’ve even been known to send a college student or two with a container of it for their dorm room.
It’s just four ingredients:
2 parts powdered milk
1 part powdered creamer
1 part powdered sugar
2 parts Nestle Quick
I don’t measure anything. I just pour into a mixing bowl and stir the dry ingredients together. I now keep it in a glass container on the kitchen counter throughout the winter months!
When you make this hot chocolate, you need to fill the mug 1/3 to 1/2 full of mix and then add hot water and stir. I always keep spray whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles on hand to top it off. I sometimes also add a drop of peppermint extract to make it a peppermint hot chocolate.
By the way, this makes a great teacher’s gift too! Just fill mason jars, add some Christmas fabric over the top of the lid, attach instructions for making a great cup of hot chocolate, and you’re done!
