Anna at London Foodie in New York is hosting this week’s BSI – chocolate! I almost wasn’t going to submit anything, because being diabetic, chocolate is pretty low on my list of ingredients I use on a daily basis!  But then I started thinking, and I decided to make something to give away!  And since the holidays will be here before you know it, its a great idea to give this away to co-workers in a holiday mug and add a couple sticks of peppermint for stirring.

Best Hot Cocoa Mix

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups dry milk powder
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup cinnamon chips
  • 1/2 cup powdered nondairy creamer
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Mix everything together with a whisk.  I put my cocoa mix in jars (I am taking them to my twinfest today to give to my sister and friends!).  The first layer is cinnamon chips, next layer the cocoa mix and then top with chocolate chips.  Add instructions that read:  Spoon 3 or 4 generous tablespoons of cocoa mix to your cup and add boiling water, stir well.





These cinnamon chips were from a Great Harvest that went out of business – $5 for this whole bag!  And Joe, next time you come over I am going to make you cinnamon muffins with these – they are really good!



Hope you enjoy!  Gotta scoot – I have a 40 minute drive to my friends house!  See you tonight! 😀
