Hot Cocoa for Your Pantry
by Marcia Passos Duffy

makes 1 cup

When making hot cocoa, skip the pre-packaged mixes in your supermarket:
they’re laden with too much sugar and other ugly additives your body does not

Here’s my own homemade mix that I keep on hand in my pantry to make
creamy hot cocoa in a
moment’s notice:

1 cup nonfat dry milk
3/4 cup light brown sugar
½ cup cocoa
Add 2 teaspoons of one of these ingredients to the above
Ground cinnamon  
Ground cloves  
Ground allspice

Combine ingredients and mix well.  Store in airtight
container…no need to refrigerate.  

To make the hot cocoa, whisk in 2 tablespoons of mixture into 1 cup  mug of
COLD milk (for easier solubility).  Microwave mug of milk/chocolate mixture
for 1 minute.  Add mini marshmallows if you’d like.
