I buy a large canister of cocoa mix and add flavored creamer. French vanilla and amaretto se's to be everyones' favorites.

my son made it one year, cost a fortune. we used dry milk, very pricy, cocoa powder, chocolate pudding (you're using powdered milk, thickens the hot cocoa) he also made plastic teaspoons dipped in hot cocoa with marshmallows . you could also add a shake of cinnamon or chili powder to add a twist to it.

This is the recipe I used to use:

8 quart box (10-2/3 cups)Carnation brand powdered milk
6 ounces non-dairy ccreamer (Coffee-Mate)
1 one-pound container of Nestle's Quick
2/3 cup (or more)powdered sugar

mix well. Store in a covered container.

To serve: place 1/3 cup (or more) in a cup and add hot water
