My daughter drinks a glass of hot chocolate made from this bulk recipe hot cocoa mix almost every day for most of the year.

It’s her little treat every day when she gets home from school, and I don’t mind one bit making it for her.

Hot Cocoa Mix without Cocoa Powder Recipe

If you’ve ever wondered how to make hot chocolate without cocoa powder, then keep reading. This bulk hot chocolate recipe is for you.

Instead of cocoa powder, our recipe uses Nestle Nesquik.  I am particularly fond of Nesquik because my Mom always bought it for us as kids to make chocolate milk. When Sam’s Club became popular, we loved the huge canister fo Nesquik Mom would bring home!

The other cool thing about this from scratch hot chocolate mix is that it uses powdered milk.  This eliminates the need to add milk when preparing. Instead, add 1/3 cup of the dry cocoa mix to boiling water and you have a perfect mug of cocoa.

How do you make hot chocolate from scratch?

Notes About Homemade Hot Cocoa Recipe (Bulk):

  • This is a hot cocoa recipe with powdered milk. What’s this mean? All you need is hot water to make amazing hot chocolate!
  • We use plain coffee creamer (dry) for our hot cocoa mix from scratch. If desired, use vanilla, caramel or any other flavored dry coffee creamer.
  • Where is nonfat dry milk in grocery store?  Check the baking aisle at your local grocery store or supermarket.
  • Be sure to store hot cocoa mix with powdered milk in an airtight container or bag.  If it’s not stored properly, then your mix will clump. I like using these air lock storage containers to store mine in.
