Make Your Own Instant Cocoa Mix

Anytime I can make something for cheaper than I can buy it I do!  Here's a recipe for instant cocoa and by making your own, you don't have the paper from the packets going into the trash or the boxes going into the trash, it's a green decision :)

Instant Cocoa Mix

2 cups nonfat dry milk powder

1/2 cup lower-fat powdered nondairy creamer

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

10 packets Equal® or 1 Tablespoon Equal® Measure

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

For cocoa mix, stir together milk powder, nondairy creamer, cocoa powder, Equal® and, if desired,

cinnamon. Cover and store in an airtight container.

For each serving, in a heat-proof mug add 3/4 cup boiling water to 1/3 cup cocoa mix; stir to dissolve.

Makes 2 2/3 cups mix, enough for 8 six-ounce servings.
