Yummy Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

As the temp drops, and winter nears, what a better way to stay warm than curled up with a nice big mug of hot cocoa. Considering the cost of GOOD hot cocoa mixes going up, I decided to try to make my own, not just for myself.

I used the recipe below is a guide and added my own flavor mix to it with 1/4 cup of crushed candy canes and and 1/2 cup of chocolate malted powder. It is oh so good!!!

Just to note: Want to make a “No Sugar Added” version, use 2 cups of Splenda or 1 cup of Splenda Baking Blend. Be sure to run it through a coffee grinder to get a powder consistency.
