This recipe for hot cocoa mix is nearly as convenient as the packaged stuff, and it’s so much better! The original recipe called for nonfat dry milk powder, but I don’t like the flavor of it. Just heat the milk in a mug in the microwave, stir in 1/4 cup of the mix and you’re all set. (Remember to slurp up the melted chocolate in the bottom of the mug!)
