Winnie the Pooh Kind of Day

It was what I refer to as a Winnie the Pooh day. Cold, blustery and requiring a hot chocolate fix. I had just enough mix left over to make two delectable mugs of hot cocoa. There's just something about hot chocolate that soothes and comforts. So now we are officially into the hot chocolate season at our house. After enjoying some hot chocolate, I whipped up a batch of this mix. This mix makes a lot and I make it several times during the winter months. Of course, Winnie the Pooh would have added honey to his hot chocolate, but this is close enough.

Hot Chocolate Mix

2 lbs. Nesquick
1 1/4 C. powdered sugar
2 C. coffee creamer
4 1/2 C non-fat dry milk

Mix all together. Store in an airtight container (or two). To use, put desired amount into a mug (2-3 TB. or so), add hot water, and enjoy!

Remember our Veterans.


  1. As soon as I'm back at the office, tomorrow, I'll need to cut and paste and print the mix ingredients. Thank you. We enjoy our rainy cold days too, either with coffee or hot chocolate and a good book.

  2. Stephen, I hope you enjoy your hot cocoa. It doesn't last in my house.

  3. Rose, it was a Pooh day today for sure here in N. Cal. Cold , wet and rainny! Had the works to make a full batch of your yummy Hot cocoa mix. I'm in heaven and so will my family as they get to share in the goodness for Christmas. I'm adding this to their Christmas Boxes and I know will be a favorite. Thank you for sharing.


  4. Your welcome, Herdog. What a great idea to put in Christmas boxes, it will make a tasty gift.
