I've tried 2 other home made hot cocoa recipes, but this one is definitely the BEST. Two big, puffy marshmallows on top make it perfect. To whoever submitted this recipe: Thank you.

In looking for a good Hot Cocoa mix I tried four different recipes and this one won out unanimously even over some very popular recipes.

I do, though, add a little more cocoa powder to balance out the sweet milkiness. I also ran the mix through the blender a bit to pulverize the dry milk and help it to dissolve better. Don't run it through to much though or it with be not as milky! Oh, and if you do blend it then make sure to measure the mix by spooning it into a measuring cup like flour or the measurement will be off.

All in all this is a great recipe for Hot Chocolate and sure beats the packaged stuff which won't taste nearly as good after trying this!
