Makes 1 quart mix or 12 servings hot cocoa

Layer the ingredients for homemade cocoa in a jar, add a ribbon and a tag, and you have a simple but stylish gift. This mix will fill a 1-quart jar (12 servings), but if your containers are different sizes, just keep the ratio of ingredients constant. On the back of the tag, write: "Mix contents in a large bowl. For each serving, place 1/3 cup cocoa mix in a mug and stir in 1 cup boiling water. Store remaining mix in airtight container."

How to Make It

Layer cocoa powder, sugar, espresso powder, powdered milk, salt, and chocolate.

I do not know what happen. I logged off.I have to say I am a tea drinker but I wanted to try this so I did. The taste was too strong sturdy. I also did few changes. This one was also for number of people. I might have it for Easter. It was nice but could of been nicer.
