Basic Hot Cocoa Mix

2 cups nonfat dry milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup non-dairy creamer
1 dash salt
mini marshmallows, optional

Combine ingredients and mix well. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 4 cups.

To use Hot Cocoa Mix:
Add 3 to 4 Tblsp. of mix to your favorite mug and fill with boiling water. Stir to blend. Add some marshmallows or cream.

Flavored Cocoa Variations
*Use flavored creamers such as Hazelnut, Irish Cream, French Vanilla, etc. (We actually used blueberry cobbler this year that was really yummy!)
*Some people like to add a package of Raspberry or Cherry unsweetened dry beverage mix (like Kool-Aid) to cocoa mix. It makes it a bit tart, you will need to add more sugar. You might try only part of an envelope. (I have never tried this variation, so let me know if it's good.)
*Try adding one teaspoon of cinnamon to the cocoa mix.
