This is a very good hot chocolate mix. I did as others advised and added chocolate pudding mix to mine...I added two boxes to the full recipe. I would also have to say that the appearance was a little on the lumpy side. There was no problem dissolving it, but to make it look "prettier" if you are giving it as a gift, I would send it thru the food processor or blender to get rid of the powdered milk lumps.

Made this twice. As written, and then with the addition of chocolate pudding and a pinch of salt. I found it too watery both ways, but better tasting with the pudding. Won't make this particular recipe again though.

Very yummy drink mix! I decided to make this to give as Christmas gifts, so I had to taste it to make sure it was alright. After a couple cups, I figured out the problem. The ingredients are just fine (actually, as another review suggested, I added some pudding mix to it), but the instructions were a little off. It tastes the best with 4 tablespoons instead of three, so I'll be sure to suggest that when I give it to people. Other than that, it tastes as if I had made up a pot of hot chocolate from scratch! Much better than store bought.

This same recipe has been in my family for years! My 3 yr old just loves it! I actually use a tall kitchen garbage bag to mix it, then cut a hole in the end to pour into containers. Enjoy!

5 stars when made with a box of instant chocolate pudding and a teaspoon of salt. Tastes great and makes a great gift. I filled mason jars with this, topped with marshmallows, and gave as Christmas presents to co-workers. FYI this recipe filled 9 (8.5oz) mason jars.

This is a very Yummy hot chocolate!! Added a box chocolate pudding mix per half batch and used rounded measurements on the NesQuick and creamer. Very delicious and easy to make! I think I will try with vanilla or hazelnut creamer next time for a twist on a classic. Thanks for this recipe!

I gave this mix with a batch of scones for holiday gifts. Everyone enjoyed it. It seemed a little thin until I added the chocolate pudding mix to it then it was much more creamy. I even cut out a lot of the added sugar and subtituted an artificial sweetener and it tasted just as good as the original.

After taste testing several hot chocolate mixes this recipe won! It was not too chocolately and not too bland (which was the problem with other recipes). A keeper!
