Homemade Hot Chocolate


Who likes hot chocolate? 

Me too. 

Let’s face it. There’s just no better way to warm up a frosty winter’s day than to wrap your hands (and mouth) around a cup of pipping hot chocolate.  

Absolute bliss. 

But I have a question for you… have you ever made your own hot chocolate? 

Me either. 


Until recently.

You see my sister has this dear friend Amy, who happens to be a fabulous cook, and who was sweet enough to send me some of her scrumptious homemade goodies last year including a lovely jar of homemade hot chocolate.  


I couldn’t believe that one scoop of this unassuming powdered hot chocolate, added to a cup of hot water, could be so incredibly glorious.


Needless to say I needed the recipe.

And let me just tell you that isn’t very often my hand holds the cup of anything but my beloved coffee. But after putting my lips up to this sweet and creamy, velvety and chocolaty, decadent hot chocolate, I simply can’t help myself.

Indulging in this deliciousness seems almost criminal.


Sometimes I even plop a dollop of marshmallow fluff on top.


And you know what? Before the fluff even has time to melt, my mind has forgotten all about the cold and dreary, and finds itself enveloped in the sweet and creamy dreamy.


And that’s what a cold winter’s day should be all about anyway, dontcha think?

(Please don’t tell my coffee.)

Here’s the yummy recipe…


Homemade Hot Chocolate
Creamy, silky, hot chocolate that will melt your cold winter day into a sweet indulgence!
  • 1 - 8 quart box of instant dry milk
  • 2 lbs Nestle Quick
  • 1 - 16 oz jar non-dairy creamer
  • 1 - cup powdered sugar
  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a very large bowl. Mix all dry ingredients until evenly incorporated.
  2. To serve :: Pour a pipping cup of hot water into your favorite mug, and ⅓ cup of the hot chocolate mixture. Stir until creamy. Slowly sip. Enjoy!
Store in a sealed container.
This hot chocolate makes a great gift when divided up into glass jars! That is if you can stand to part with it!

    Adding a skosh of cayenne pepper to the mix adds just a hint of spice that is sure to warm things up. It’s delish. I’ve been making this recipe for years … sometimes we add bitty chocolate morsels to the mix just for kicks … decadent I’m telling you!
