The first post I ever wrote on this blog was a recipe for homemade hot chocolate. I think it’s kind of funny now. Honestly, I had just created my blog and I just wanted to put something up on it.

On the other hand, I can reference that hot chocolate recipe easily – cuz I know exactly where it’s at. 😉 Handy, since I made our fall/winter batch of hot chocolate mix this morning.

This time, I decided to increase the ingredients by half in order to use the entire box of Nestle quick and make a larger batch. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you view it) I overlooked the fact that I only had enough powdered milk for one batch and no more! Since I added that last, I was already committed with my 1 1/2 sized batch. With no other options, I added the one box of powdered milk and mixed it up anyway.

It couldn’t hurt, right?

Um, NO!!

This recipe is smoother and more chocolatey and… YUM!

Mix up your own. Try it. Savor it.


1 large container Nestle Quick (21.8 oz.)

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 1/2 cups non-dairy creamer

1 box (1lb., 9oz.) instant, non-fat milk

Stir all the dry ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Add the mix to your hot water to taste, approximately 1/3 cup of mix to 1 cup of hot water.

You can also use sugar-free milk chocolate mix, or fat free creamer or make any other adjustments for preference.

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
