Minty Friendship Cocoa

Hot cocoa is one of my favorite treats on a cold, snowy day. My mom used to make us hot cocoa for breakfast and serve it with warm biscuits and honey butter. Mmmm! I can taste it all over again. It sure did warm a kid before heading out to stand in the cold wind while waiting for the school bus! How I would have LOVED to take a cup of this with me to the bus.

Thank goodness it’s more portable now, with the invention of disposable insulated cups with lids! The lids help my kids drink it without so many spills right in my home, too!
And my version of cocoa has a smooth mint that literally melts right in your cup — with or without a lid!

  • 3 cups Powdered Milk
  • ¾ cup Non-Dairy Creamer
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1 ½ cups Instant Chocolate Milk Powder, like Nesquik
  • 14 squares Andes Mints, finely chopped
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well and store in an air-tight container.
Mix 1/3 cup of the above mix in 3/4 cup hot water. Stir and enjoy.
