Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
I'm giving this 3 stars because its a good starting point and the addition of the pudding mix is tasty. However, I like most people had to tweak it to make it good. I made these for christmas party favors. I mixed several batches one at the time and after I made the first I tried it to make sure it was good. I like mine super chocolate-y and sweet. Here is what I did and how I mixed my cup/wrote the directions. 3 1/2 cups powdered milk, 2 (5oz) boxes cook and sever chocolate pudding mix, 2 cups nesquik, 1/2cup vanilla non dairy creamer, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa powder. Made a cup + a tad over 3 pint jars worth. For mixing/what I tried I heated a large mug of water in the microwave until hot then stirred in 4 heaping tablespoons full of the mix. by heaping I mean...was probably about 6-7 level tablespoons worth. It of course does not taste like box mix but it has the same sweetness and chocolate levels. I was surprisingly pleased with the out come as I normally mix hot cocoa mix with warm milk not water. So yeah after tweaks I would definitely make it again and make it for myself.
