Small Gifts: Hot Cocoa Mix
We make Loads of this mix each winter. Here is how I packaged it this year. I used a mug template and cut out the pattern on card stock. I used my sewing machine to stitch up the edges and then embellished with a variety of scrapbook supplies.
Here is the recipe for the Cocoa mix:
1 14-quart box nonfat dry milk
1 1-pound jar coffee-mate creamer
1 2-pound box Nestle's Quik
1 2-pound bag confectioner's sugar -- sifted
1 15-ounce jar chocolate malted milk mix (Ovaltine)
Combine all ingredients together in a VERY large bowl. Mix well. Store in airtight containers (like jars). Attach instructions for use with each jar.
Instructions: To use, mix 1/3 cup of the dry mix with 2/3 cup boiling water. Stir and top with marshmallows, if desired.
