nonfat dry milk powder
unsweetened cocoa powder
Made this for my boys this morning and they loved it! It wasn't too sweet (like most mixes we have) and was great for a rainy, cold morning. Will make again!
This was too bland for my taste. I added an additional 1/4 cup cocoa powder and 1/4 cup sugar and it was better, but still not as chocolaty as I like it.
We use milk to make our hot cocoa, so I decreased the powdered milk to 1 packet (roughly 1 1/4C). I also increased the cocoa and sugar to 1C each. We use 2 heaping spoonfuls per mug of hot milk. Fantastic!
An addendum to my review. I found that if you use high quality powdered milk, it's better. I bought Carnation, which was very fine powder, and it worked the best with this recipe. Buying cheap generic store brand powdered milk, which tends to be more granular, doesn't work as well.
I really try to follow directions exactly then if my personal preference differs adjust. The recipe prepared as written is indeed wonderfully chocolatey but I needed to adjust to suit me by adding another 1/2 cup powered milk. That made the beverage perfect for me, perfect relation sweet and chocolate to the milk. I absolutely concur I do want chemical other stuff in my hot cocoa, thank you so much for sharing.
This is such a good recipe. I replaced the powder milk with powder creamer and it made this so much more creamier. I also like my cocoa rich tasting so I added 3/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa.
This was a great base, but I made a few tweaks. I mixed 2 cups of dry milk with 1 cup dry goat milk, doubled the sugar and doubled the coco. I also used demerara organic sugar that I ground into a fine power in a coffee grinder. Using the organic sugar and goat milk give it a more "homey" flavor
