I named it Gram's Hot Chocolate Mix because I am a new Grandma! it will be a few years before she is ready for hot cocoa, but when she is I will make sure it is this recipe.
I make a big batch and send to the kids away at college every year for the fall/winter along with my Non caffeinated Russian Tea mix.
This recipe is mixed with water, which makes it convenient, and believe me, it has plenty of milky creaminess right in the mix!
I love to give a little mason jar of this mix as gifts. Tuck in some mini marshmallows, and a cute mug in a basket and you have a great gift for anyone! Just remember to add a small tag with the mixing directions (at the bottom of this post).
Here is the final version of this fantastic hot chocolate.
