Better Than Swiss Miss

Don't you just love it when you find a great recipe on Pinterest!?! I am so please with the recipe that I found last week for semi-homemade hot chocolate mix from Jill's blog One Good Thing. Since we have been buying Swiss Miss in bulk I knew that my kiddos would love this recipe and boy with I right. L has declared that this is best!

Semi-Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

4 cups powdered milk
21.8 oz box Nestle Nesquik
16 oz instant coffee creamer
1 cup powdered sugar (Jill suggested that you could adjust this to taste. The kiddos and I thought this amount was perfect).
1/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa*

Mix all of this together in a big bowl. Pour into a storage jar or canister.** To make a mug of cocoa, add 3-5 heaping tablespoons of mix per mug. Top with hot water or milk, then stir.
*Jill's recipe did not call for cocoa, but the kiddos and I like dark chocolate so I decided to add some cocoa. Next time I make this recipe I plan to add a full cup of cocoa. I will let you know how that goes!

**I had no desire to clean an extra bowl so I mixed all of the ingredients in the jar that I planned to use. Which, by the way, was a gallon storage container.

This yummy recipe makes a ton which is perfect for us since we are enjoying our second snow day in a row! Man it is going to be so hard to wake up to reality tomorrow....


  1. That sweet smile on your son's face says it all!

  2. Your children are just precious! We are almost out of our costco monster box of Swiss Miss so I think I'll give your recipe a try! We are big cocoa fans in this household!

    Lucky you...two snow days! My husband was the ONLY one in at his office today...I informed him on the phone of the the government being closed today as he was arriving in the parking garage...lol! We only ended up with rain today :(

  3. Must try this - I'm a sucker for hot cocoa. Have you seen the crockpot version on pinterest? looks yummy too and perfect for huge crowds! thanks for sharing!
