Our Favorite Semi-Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix!

Homemade hot chocolate made easy and delicious!

Ever since the weather started turning colder…we have been going through a LOT of hot chocolate at our house! We USED to be a Swiss Miss family until I discovered this semi-homemade version of hot chocolate that we fell in love with (don’t worry, I still love my crockpot hot chocolate recipe and can’t resist hot cocoa bombs!) It’s SO good once you try it, you will never want to go back to the store-bought stuff again!

Case in point: my husband Dave recently got back from a business trip to Calgary, Canada. While he was there he went to a restaurant called Tim Horton’s that is supposedly famous for their hot chocolate. He said THAT hot chocolate didn’t hold a candle to THIS.

That convinced me it was time to re-introduce our favorite hot chocolate to those of you who missed it the first time around.

Jillee’s Family’s Favorite Semi-Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 cups powdered milk
  • 21.8 oz box Nestle Nesquik (you could substitute the homemade Nesquik, I just haven’t tried it yet.)
  • 16 oz instant coffee creamer
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (you can adjust this to taste. I like it a little less sweet and this amount is perfect).

Add all of the ingredients to a big bowl (trust me on this one!) and mix well. Pour into a storage jar or canister.

To make a mug of cocoa, fill it with water or milk and heat in the microwave. Add 3-5 heaping tablespoons of mix to the cup and stir well.

What I like most about this mix:

  • It mixes into hot milk or water wonderfully! No little globs of unincorporated hot chocolate mix floating on top.
  • It’s the perfect sweetness!
  • Like your hot chocolate with a normal amount of creaminess? Add 3 heaping tablespoons of mix. Like it EXTRA creamy? Add 5 tablespoons. It’s very customizable.
  • It is the perfect compliment to buttered toast in the morning. 🙂  Especially English Muffin Bread! One of my favorite breakfasts!

And finally…..

  • It makes a great gift!  Especially at Christmastime! For a neighbor or teacher, fill a mason jar with mix and attach a tag. For someone you’re closer to, make a whole big batch and put it in a beautiful glass canister. Trust me, they will LOVE you! 🙂
