Homemade Hot Cocoa (with free printable!)

Homemade Hot Cocoa.

Who doesn’t love a little hot cocoa?

Homemade Hot Cocoa recipe | www.jennyonthespot.com

My family’s favorite hot cocoa is the kind I make. It’s my the recipe my mom used when I was a kid.

Now that my hot water comes to me caffeinated (coffee)… I love to add this hot cocoa mix to a cup of coffee.

SO good.

It’s also one of those homemade giftables that’s fairly easy to make and give… whether in observance of the Christmas season… or just a thoughtful winter-warm-up giftable!

Just watch… see how easy this is?!!!

Mom’s Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

32 oz Nestle’ Quick

20 oz. powdered/dry milk

2 cups non-dairy creamer

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup cocoa powder

Mix well.

Stir 1/4 cup in a mug of hot water. Or hot coffee!

Stir with a peppermint stick or/and top with marshmallows… or whipped cream!

Just go crazy and have fun!

For a gift, a quart-size jar works great. You can get a little over 3 cups of mix into one jar (about 10-12 servings)… This recipe makes a little over 5 quarts.

I made jar labels printables if you’d like these for your own gift-giving purposes. There are two styles with two sizes… one for wide-mouthed mason jars and one for regular mouth mason jars. I simply trace the lid and cut out. If you have a big circle cutter or punch, that would be even easier! I made a couple label options… since hot cocoa isn’t just to enjoy at Christmas!

Homemade Hot Cocoa label options | jennyonthespot.com
Below you will all four options for quart-size mason jars. Small jars are fine too, but remember you need about 1/4 cup of mix. For those with a sweet tooth, they may want to add a bit more than 1/4 cup. So keep in mind that a quart jar will yield 10-12 servings… small jars much less.
