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.
