But wait........no hot cocoa mix???
5 kids on the floor, screaming, crying, limbs flailing.
Let's pause for a moment and picture this........
Jake is 6'3", Bay is 5'9" & Matt 5'11".
Got a visual?
Yes, Matt is 1 of the 5.
Ok let's move on.
What's a mother to do?
TA-DA....Google to the rescue!!!!
A Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe courtesy of Family Fun Online!!!
Woo Hoo I am saved!
2 cups nonfat dry milk powder
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup powdered nondairy creamer (we used french vanilla)
1/8 tsp. salt
Whisk all ingredients until blended.
Makes about 4 cups mix.
Add 3 heaping Tbls. mix to a cup of boiling water.
We may never go back to the other stuff.
I always have powdered milk on hand.
(It's a backpaker thing.)
I had the creamer left over from another hot drink recipe that I will share with you tomorrow.
All is well again at Ridgetop Farm.
This might make a nice Valentine's gift for the chocolate lover in your life!
