Heavenly Hot Chocolate Mix

At Christmastime, I make up several batches of this hot chocolate mix to give away. I package it in clean, empty instant coffee jars and add a festive label. People frequently return the jars for refills! —Sara Tatham, Plymouth, New Hampshire

    I mad this for my co workers at Christmas this year. They all loved it. It has a creamy and rich chocolate flavor, and was relatively economical as well.

    You can usually find it in the coffee isle with the teas and cocoa mixes.

    Very good. Very rich. It can be mixed with up to 1c water and is still good. Great for gift giving!

    I also made half a batch and used all chocolate malted powder instead of the regular and chocolate. It is good but VERY chocolatey! I will try it with both next time. This one is a winner with my family!
