Ingredients

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 1 cup unsweetened powdered cocoa, regular or dark

To Make a Cup of Hot Cocoa: (Single serving)

  • Stove Top: Mix 1 cup of milk with, depending on how rich and sweet you like it, 2-3 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat. Bring to a simmer - but do not boil. Stir so the milk does not scald. Pour into a mug and top with whipped cream or mini marshmallows.
  • Microwave: Mix 1 cup of milk with, depending on your sweet preference, 2-3 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix. Heat in the microwave until hot and steaming. Top with whipped cream or mini marshmallows.
