  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • cup sugar
  • 1 quart (4 1/2 cups) instant dry non-fat milk
  • 1 cup dry vanilla coffee creamer


  • Mix dry ingredients and pour into 6 oz. mason jars. Each 6 oz. mason jar holds about 3/4 cup of mix, plus mini marshmallows.
  • Store any extra in an airtight container.
  • To make, stir 2 tbsp of mix with 6 oz. boiling water. (Use 3 tbsp of mix for a larger mug.)


This recipe is a modified version of a cocoa mix recipe from Miss Daisy Cooks Light. I found the original too sweet and not rich enough, but the addition of vanilla flavored coffee creamer took care of that.
