Thrive’s December monthly delivery specials include Instant Milk at 50% off and I had some good ideas for yummy drink mixes using it. I did a poll in our Facebook Group to see if you’d rather have a hot cocoa or an egg nog mix and Hot Cocoa won so I tested lots of recipes and here is the winner!
Please note I will also be showing the egg nog mix and lots of other yummy holiday recipes on our monthly cooking demo you can register for at this link

Hot Cocoa Mix (in-a-jar)
Don’t forget all ingredients will be cheaper and are available for free shipping for delivery customers if your order is over $100. A pint-sized jar will make 4-8 cups of hot cocoa.
- 2/3 c. Powdered Sugar, sifted
- 1/3 c. Unsweetened baking cocoa
- 2/3 c. Thrive Instant Milk
- 1/3 c. Mini Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
To make jar: Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Pour into a pint-sized jar using a funnel. Attach a cute gift tag with twine or ribbon and use it for a gift or use the regular labels and tape them on for home use. You can also make a bigger batch and pour into a cookie jar or larger mason jar to have delicious homemade hot cocoa all winter long!
To prepare: Add 1/4 c. to 1/2 c. of hot cocoa mix to 1 c. of boiling water. Stir well. Top with mini marshmallows or whipped cream if desired.
To make single-serving jar gift: For a prettier jar for a neighbor, teacher, co-worker gift use a 1/2 pint size jar and add half the amount of ingredients in the order listed above. Attach this individual serving gift tag with ribbon or twine.
