I've made this beverage mix many times as Christmas gifts for neighbors and our three sons' teachers. The mint flavor makes the warm drink so refreshing, you'll want to make extra to keep around your house, too.

This is an awesome recipe! We will be using this for a long time! (For those who use cups instead of ounces, use 7-2/3 cups chocolate powder and 6-1/4 cups dry milk powder.)

I have made this recipe to give to friends and neighbors every Christmas for the last several years. Everyone love it!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 1, 2011

I had to use a large stock pot to mix this in. I bought the instant chocolate drink mix and the nonfat dry milk powder in a wholesale store so the packaging was larger. I do not own a scale, so I estimated what was needed in cups....I used 7 cups of the chocolate mix and 6 cups of the nonfat dry milk. I made several containers to give as gifts and of course I had to try it first. It is delicious, better than the store bought hot chocolate mixes I usually buy. I crushed the peppermint candies in my mini food processor, and it did an excellent job, made it into a powder. I was a little nervous that it was going to crack the bowl, but I was lucky. I will be making this again!

This is the only hot chocolate we can drink now. My husband and sons love it! I dont mix with milk either, just hot water and its still fabulous. I add cocoa powder, powdered sugar and vanilla to real whipped cream and serve it with the hot chocolate. Yummy!
