Homemade Hot Chocolate

I have a confession…

We do not like store bought hot chocolate.

Several years ago, I was part of a bible study group and the woman who held it at her house always had this hot chocolate mix and I fell in love having several cups each time we met. She gave me her recipe and I went home and tweaked it a bit, and this is what I came up with. I know there’s lots of recipes for this all over the internets, but this is my version.

Here’s what you will need:

In a large bowl, mix together 4 c. Nestle Nesquik, 3 1/4 c. Nonfat Dry Milk, 3 c. Coffee Creamer, and 5 c. Powdered Sugar. Mix together well.

Mix 3 T. into 8 oz. of hot water, or hot milk (our preference). Stir well and top with whipped cream and sprinkles or marshmallows.

Wassail

Ok, so Ol’ Blue Eyes is still out tinkering with Humpty, and he asked me to whip him up some Wassail.

Now, I’ve tried many Wassail recipes, and this one is my favorite.  Why?  Because it is. (That’s my nephew’s answer to everything, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.)

Anyhoo, I took some pictures while I was whipping this up.

Are you ready for your house to smell AWESOME?

Are you ready for some wonderful goodness that’ll make you feel warm and gooey inside?

Then this will tickle your fancy.

Here’s the characters you will need.

Let us have a moment of silence for those of you who do not have a Water Still in your area.  (If you had one then you would understand what you are missing.)

Now, mix all these characters together and bring to boil on your stove top.

Serve smokin hot with a cookie.

Wait, where’d my cookie go?
