Powdered Hot Cocoa Mix

1-64 oz box Nonfat Dry Milk (makes 20 quarts)
1 -22 oz can powdered coffee creamer
1 -2 pound bag powdered sugar
70 oz powdered Nesquik (give or take a few oz)

Mix all ingredients thoroughly and store in tightly sealed containers.

Add 1/3 -1/2 cup cocoa mix to 8oz hot water for Cocoa.

**Most mugs hold more than 8oz so measure if you do not want watery hot cocoa! (or just add more mix if your cocoa is not strong enough for you!)

**This recipe makes a TON! (a little more than 2 gallons of powdered mix) I know some people that have carefully washed the crisper drawer from their refrigerator to have something large enough to mix it in! The recipe is the size it is because, aside of the Nesquik, you use the entire package of each ingredient. And with the Nesquik, I buy what ever cans I can find that add up to around 70 oz and use the entire cans as well. If you try and make a smaller batch there is a lot of work in weighing out the ingredients!

**This also makes a reasonable mess to mix. Think powdered sugar mushroom cloud. It is not a bad idea to mix it outside! :)

I know this sounds like a lot of trouble but I promise it makes REALLY yummy hot cocoa! And, when put in fun containers makes nice gifts too!
