"easy peasy to prepare. I made this for Christmas gifts. Next time I would add a couple tablespoons of cocoa powder, as perhaps the chocolate drink mix I used was not chocolaty enough. I found this makes up just as nice with water."

"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.)"
