My Grandma Eileen used to work during the winter making everything from candy to Hot Chocolate Mix.   I remember her counters covered with parchment paper filled with rows of delicious cookies topped with Hershey Kisses and thin peanut brittle that I couldn’t stop sneaking.

Her Hot Chocolate Mix is one of my favorites, because it’s great for kids who just came in from the snow, adults who want to curl up on a cold night, and friends who you think deserve a little treat.


  • 1 Package powdered instant milk     (8qt size)
  • 1 pound box Nestles quick
  • 6oz Coffeemate
  • 1 pound powdered sugar


1.   Mix all ingredients together and store in air tight container.

2.   To serve mix 1/3 cup mix to 1 cup hot water.   Stir and enjoy.

3.   This mix will also make a great gift.   Just fill a Mason jar 3/4 full of Mix and add miniature marshmallows to fill the jar.   Decorate with square of fabric and a ribbon.
