Hot Cocoa Mix Take Two (just add water)

A few months back I made a hot cocoa mix that was pretty dang good.  I have since modified it to be more like regular hot cocoa mixes, meaning that instead of adding in hot milk, all you need to add is water.  So, it's the same basic hot cocoa mix, but with Vance's Darifree Non-Dairy Milk Powder added to make it even faster and easier to make a hot cup of cocoa. Enjoy!

Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa Mix
3 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups cocoa
1 tablespoon table salt
3 cups Darifree Milk Powder

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, salt, and Darifree, and whisk to combine well.  Store the mixture in an airtight container.

For individual servings, heat 1 cup of water.  Place 3 tablespoons of the cocoa mix into a mug, and slowly stir in the hot water, mixing as you're stirring (I find you have less lumps if you do it this way, then adding the mix to the milk).

  1. After you whisk the ingredients together, sift mix 2 times with a hand sifter. No lumps when you add water! Thanks for the recipe. It's just like Swiss Miss!
