Aunt Ruth's Hot Chocolate Mix

It's a chilly day here in the south!  Perfect for a cup of hot chocolate!
 
 My Grandma used to make the best hot chocolate mix every winter.  The recipe actually came from my Great-Aunt Ruth and I thought I'd share it with you all today! 
 
 
Aunt Ruth's Hot Chocolate Mix
1 lb Nestle's Quick powder (chocolate)
13 c powdered milk
1/2 c powdered sugar
12 oz powdered coffee creamer
 
Combine ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Keep in an airtight container.  Use about 1/3 cup mix with hot water. Stir well! Can use more or less for personal taste. Top with whipped cream and serve.
 
This recipe can be adjusted. If you like less chocolate, use less chocolate and more creamer.
 
 
And I'm totally loving these paper straws. The end.
