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.
