Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe

When our children left for college, they each insisted on taking a large container of this cinnamon-y cocoa mix with them to the dorm. For rich results, all they need to do is add hot milk, stir and enjoy! —Linda Nilsen, Anoka, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 22, 2012

I love this recipe. It isn't overly sweet. We made about 12 batches and gave them out as Christmas gifts. We added 50% more of the baking cocoa and cinnamon though.

MY REVIEW

I have made this for years for gifts. I put it in quart mason jars after I have stenciled the lids with a Christmas design. Put marshmallows in a holiday mug tie it off with plastic wrap and raffi. I do add a little more chocolate drink and cinnamon to my recipe. I have been told it taste better if it is 3-6 months old. If you are gifting make ahead.

I found it left a taste of the powdered milk. Might taste better with more chocolate drink mix.

Made this every year for years for each child in my class at school. I watched for mugs to come on sale at the local party store and gave each child a holiday mug filled with a bag of cinnamon hot chocolate mix. They loved it!
