Hot cocoa mix is a luxury item on your grocery list, and it can be really pricey if you buy a cup at Starbucks or other coffee hut. So why not make your own at home? It’s easy, tasty and saves you money. Now, how sweet is that? The Nestle company offers this recipe: Combine 1 1/2 cups instant nonfat dry milk with 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup baking cocoa, plus a pinch of salt. Combine thoroughly in a container that has a tight lid. To serve, place 4 tablespoons of the mixture in a cup and add boiling water and stir well. Marshmallows are optional. For richer cocoa, add hot milk instead. No preservatives or funky ingedients, either. The Food Network has a dozen other recipes for hot cocoa mix, including a hazelnut flavored one, a peppermint cocoa and others. Or click on a video featuring chef Alton Brown for his version.
