This was VERY creamy also VERY good. Oh and when she says use a large bowl - USE A LARGER BOWL. I used Nestle's Hot Cocoa mix (it says add either hot water or milk)...so I had to try it. I used the 1/3 cup to 8 oz. hot water and it was very creamy (probably wouldn't use milk). Oh and I also added like 40 of the peppermint candies (as I had bought a rather large bag of them). I too made this for Christmas gifts - hope they like it too.

easy peasy to prepare. I made this for Christmas gifts. Next time I would add a couple tablespoons of cocoa powder, as perhaps the chocolate drink mix I used was not chocolaty enough. I found this makes up just as nice with water.

This is an awesome recipe! We will be using this for a long time! (For those who use cups instead of ounces, use 7-2/3 cups chocolate powder and 6-1/4 cups dry milk powder.)

I have made this recipe to give to friends and neighbors every Christmas for the last several years. Everyone love it!

I had to use a large stock pot to mix this in. I bought the instant chocolate drink mix and the nonfat dry milk powder in a wholesale store so the packaging was larger. I do not own a scale, so I estimated what was needed in cups....I used 7 cups of the chocolate mix and 6 cups of the nonfat dry milk. I made several containers to give as gifts and of course I had to try it first. It is delicious, better than the store bought hot chocolate mixes I usually buy. I crushed the peppermint candies in my mini food processor, and it did an excellent job, made it into a powder. I was a little nervous that it was going to crack the bowl, but I was lucky. I will be making this again!

This is the only hot chocolate we can drink now. My husband and sons love it! I dont mix with milk either, just hot water and its still fabulous. I add cocoa powder, powdered sugar and vanilla to real whipped cream and serve it with the hot chocolate. Yummy!
