Pink Hot Cocoa Mix

Strawberry Hot Cocoa Mix

I am starting a new Thrifty Holidays Series,.Every Friday till Christmas I'll post a thrifty gift idea you can make for your holiday giving.  My first  Thrifty Gift  is Pink Hot Cocoa Mix.

 With the air turning chilly and cups of hot cocoa in the ready, this non-chocolate hot cocoa is not only tasty, it is fun and a great substitute for the non-chocolate lover in your family who may feel left out during hot cocoa time.

Whether you want to call it Pink Hot Cocoa or Strawberry Hot Cocoa, this 4 -ingredient mix takes less than 5 minutes to mix up.  It would be a cute gift  in a pretty jar or those Hot Cocoa Cone bags topped with mini marshmallows and tied with a cute bow. It makes about 6 cups of mix, so you'll have plenty to store some in a larger airtight container for yourself as well as several affordable gifts.

  2. I make a coffee drink that is easy to make, I remember it by 3 - 2 - 1. 3 cups of powdered milk, 2 cups of sugarfree powdered chocolate mix, 1 cup instant coffee and 1 cup of Splenda or Splenda blend. I shake it in a ziplock bag then store it in a mason jar. Mix 3 tablespoons of the drink mix with a cup of hot water, then enjoy. It's easy to take on the road, and sugarfree!

    1. Sakura, thanks for sharing the recipe! I don't drink coffee, so I would never have come up with that mix! You rock!

    1. I know! Who doesn't love chocolate? I have one "strange" child who doesn't hate chocolate, but doesn't care for it either. I don't understand that at all! :)

  7. What a great idea - but I'll just supplement my chocolate fix instead of replacing it! Pinned! Thanks for linking on Busy Monday!

  10. Just wondering, but what kind of strawberry drink mix did you use? Like the nestle strawberry milk drink mix or?

    1. I can't remember if it was Nestle's brand of strawberry milk powder or a generic store brand version, but it was that type of drink mix.
      THanks for asking!
