Dropping a whipped cream-filled chocolate cup into hot chocolate makes for an extra-special beverage. I make the chocolate cups ahead, chill them, then fill just before serving.

  • 8 cups nonfat dry milk powder
  • 3-3/4 cups instant chocolate drink mix

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
  2. For chocolate cups, in a microwave, melt chips and shortening; stir until smooth. With a small pastry brush or 1/2 teaspoon measure, spread chocolate mixture on the inside of 1-in. foil or paper candy cups.
