This cocoa is fabulous! I made it for our very large extended family for Christmas this year, and I think it's great. Only gave it 4 stars because I think it is a bit on the sweet side, but I like it that way :)
Just a few notes: I followed previous reviewers suggestions, adding the package of pudding mix and 1 tsp of salt.
Due to the size of our family, I doubled the recipe, so if you need a whole bunch, here is what I did:
I used one (30 ounce) container of the chocolate drink mix.
The powdered milk packages didn't correlate to the measurements listed in the recipe, so I did a little math and figured out that out of my 64-ounce box of powdered milk, I needed to remove 5 1/3 cups in order to be left with the 51 1/4 ounces of powder that I needed for my doubled recipe.
Doubled, this recipe yields approximately 21 cups of cocoa, so can make quite a few nice gifts for extended family/friends/neighbors.
I would also definitely recommend blending or processing this mix so that it is more uniform in both mixture as well as texture; if you use a flavored creamer, I would opt for the sugar-free variety, as I think this may be where some of my super-sweetness came from.
And, finally, 4T of mix are a must for hot water; however, if you use milk, 3T is just perfect!
Whew - that's all I have to say!
