Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

 Last year, I made jars of homemade hot chooclate for my friends. This made a good gifts for friends with 'families' since it's something they can all share.   It made a lot, it's chocolate, it's drinkable, and you can put it in a jar.  Hello, the jar should have been sufficient reasons to make this an effective gift choice for anyone's Christmas list.  Did I mention it's chocolate? 
Here's a simple recipe: 
4 c. nonfat dry milk powder, 1 1/2 c. sugar, 1 c. non-dairy coffee creamer, 2/3 c. cocoa powder, 4 oz box of instant chocolate pudding. 
Mix.  Package up. 
Add a tag with the instruction for the drink-er to add 1/4-1/2 c. to 8 oz of milk or water heated.

Do you mind if I share this recipe and your photo with something over at The Old Schoolhouse Magazine? I will post a link to your blog, along with your name with it?

Thanks,
Pat

Which hot chocolate recipe do you recommend... the one in this post or the one you posted on your blog last year? I'm trying to decide. Thanks!!

They are both great, depending on your love for the sweet factor, this one has pudding so it's a little creamier....which I like. :O)

As the recipe is attributed to Alton Brown and there have been some questions as to how long this mix can be kept, Mr. Brown says to seal it in an airtight container and it will keep indefinitely in the pantry.

Thanks for the tip! I got this recipe about 10 years ago from a friend's mom....which came first, the chicken or the egg? But I always figure on storage...it's good as long as the original ingredients you mix in it are good through. :O)
