What You'll Need

  • 10-2/3 cups instant nonfat powdered milk
  • 1 (6 ounce) jar powdered nondairy creamer
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 bag mini marshmallows

How to Make It

  1. Combine the instant nonfat powdered milk, powdered nondairy creamer, powdered sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, and mini marshmallows in a large bowl and stir gently to mix well.
  2. Carefully decant into a large container with an airtight lid. Store in an airtight container in a cool dark place up to 6 months. 
  3. For one serving, stir 3 tablespoons of the Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix into 1 cup of hot water until dissolved. I prefer using hot milk in place of the hot water, for a richer and more gentle taste. The choice is yours.
