Reviews for Hot Cocoa Mix
"Made with coffee granules (decaf) and hazelnut creamer - go good. Not as strong as most coffee drinks whick I like."
"I make this all the time! MOST EXCELLENT! As for the question about the instant chocolate drink mix, that is what you use to make a glass of chocolate milk. I use the store brands which are much much cheaper than name brand ones and the end product is WONDERFUL--Nice and creamy. For an additional flavor change, try a pack of Orange Kool-Aid mix--Yummy!"
"sounds good. but what is instant chocolate drink mix?? store bought hot chocolate?? please help."
