It has been really cold and windy here the last couple of days and yesterday we even got a little snow.
I think it's pretty much a requirement to have hot chocolate ready when the kids come in from playing outside on days like that, isn't it?
And by all means, if you still have a Christmas tray out on your kitchen counter, go ahead and take a picture with it, ok?
The last time I made a batch of hot chocolate mix I tried a recipe from Melanie of Mel's Kitchen Cafe.
So, so good! I think the addition of ground white chocolate really takes it up a couple notches from
3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips or finely chopped white chocolate
1/4 tsp salt
Whisk together all ingredients in a large bowl. Working in batches depending on the size of your food processor, pulse the mixture until the chocolate is finely ground. Store in an airtight container for up to three months.
To make hot cocoa, put 1/3 cup of the mixture into a mug and stir in 1 cup hot milk. Top with whipped cream or marshmallows if desired.
