I started by making 1/3 of the original recipe, 15 servings, which made the making much more managable. You do need a large bowl even to mix this amount. The powdered sugar causes this recipe to dissolve quickly in the hot cup of water which I like. I find the light taste fine just as the recipe is but I did add more cocoa and a little more sugar to my final batch before sending it out into the gift basket. I'm not sure it really made a difference. Most hot cocoa recipes call for equal amounts of granulated sugar and cocoa, I assume the confectioners sugar in this one made up for the difference between the other recipes. It is an individual taste you can play with in a smaller batch to get the flavor you want. I enclosed cinnamon stirring sticks with mine rather than to put cinnamon in the mix. But I will try cinnamon in a cup myself to test the flavor. All in all I will make this again it was easy and the flavor was very acceptable.
