Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

Shares 402

I decided to make up a batch of homemade hot cocoa mix the other day.  My mom always made this when my sister and I were little, but it had been a long time since I’d made any.  I still have some Swiss Miss packets in the pantry, but the kids have been choosing this over the store-bought kind.

It’s really easy to make and you get a lot of mix with one batch.  Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 cups powdered milk
  • 21.8 oz box Nestle’s Quik
  • 16oz instant coffee creamer
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Mix all of this together in a big bowl.  Pour back into the empty containers to store.  To make a mug of cocoa, fill it with water or milk and heat in the microwave.  Add 3-5 big spoons of mix to the cup and stir well.

  1. I make this every winter! I leave a canister of it on the counter for the kids!

  2. I used to make this and a friend make “Fireside Cocoa Mix” that has nutmeg and mini marshmallows in it. So yummy!

  3. Oh, my kids would love it if I made this tonight! We’ve run out of our Swiss Miss and I think I have all the ingredients.

    Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  4. This is a perfect recipe for a chilly day like today! Thanks Tiffany!

  5. I tried this with Vanilla Caramel creamer, but it tastes more Vanilla Caramel than chocolate. I think I would do half flavored, half plain next time.

  6. Great recipe! I run my powdered milk through the food processor when I make this. I find that the mix dissolves better that way.

  7. I’ve been making this forever, except over the years we add two packages of dream whip and cinnamon
