Does anybody have a good dry cocoa mix recipe? I need something I can just add hot water or hot milk to, that will keep on the shelf for a few weeks.
My mom made some once that was just Ovaltine and dry milk powder mixed together. Seem to recall it wasn't half bad.
Hmm, thanks, but I should have mentioned I'm in Bhutan and don't have non-dairy creamer, ovaltine, quik, instant pudding, cool whip, etc. (I found some really disturbing recipes online last night). I do have cocoa, sugar, and powdered milk, so I guess I will just experiment with those.

I haven't tried this recipe, but it looks like a good starting point. It's from The Perfect Mix by Dianne Phillips. It's pretty big, but I'm sure you could halve it.
Hot Chocolate Mix
3 cups powdered milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
dash of salt
Sift into a large bowl, pack into airtight containers.
4 Tbs of mix
8 ounces boiling water
marshmallows or whipped cream
Put mix into a mug, Pour in boiling water, stir until mix is dissolved. Garnish with marshmallows or cream.
Good luck! My parents visited Bhutan two years ago and loved it. However, they have never been so cold in their lives :) You need a hot beverage!
Tyler Florence also has a really good recipe that uses cocoa powder, powdered milk, sugar...Check on Food Network.com...he did it for a holiday episode last year with homemade marshmallows...I think there's also a spiced version...
