getting better...

i'm sorry for my long absence. i had lots of fun things planned for december but then silly life got in the way and instead of being a fun celebratory time, it's been a couple of tough weeks. my grandpa has been ill and we were very worried.

but things are getting better i'm hoping these last few days before christmas can be fun, with lots of cookie baking and holiday movie watching. and i wanted to share one little holiday project, homemade hot cocoa mix. it makes a great treats for friends and neighbors, a really fun hostess gift and it's really nice to drink on christmas morning.


recipe:
-3 cups powdered milk
-3 cups powdered sugar
-1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
-1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
-2 chocolate bars (approximately 8oz total, i use cadbury dairy milk bars)

chop chocolate bars. whisk all ingredients together. in batches, pulse in food processor until chocolate is finely ground. store in an airtight container for 3 months.

if giving as a gift, attach a tag with instructions to mix 1/3 cup with 1 cup with hot milk.

xo,
carly
