Homemade Copycat Nesquick (to make chocolate milk or hot cocoa)

This is a simple 2-ingredient recipe I saw just before granddaughter, Kaity, came to visit us for a few days. We made a few things in the kitchen and she took home samples of everything...except she took all of this home with her to share with her siblings. 

After mixing it in milk the first time, I decided to run it through the blender to make it easier to dissolve, because it was too 'clumpy'.  I also read a hint somewhere else on the net suggesting dissolving the mix in a teaspoon of 
hot water before adding the cold milk to it.

That really seemed to work better. 

(Isn't she a beaut??=)

I know this recipe is all over the net, but I used the recipe found at 

I used half sugar and half xylitol to reduce the sugar content. I think it's always good to know what's in a mix too. And one thing that's good to reduce in a kid's diet is sugar!

I love knowing what's in a recipe!!

Go ahead...make your kids happy.  This is very frugal and they can get plenty of calcium enjoying this easy mix....mixing it with milk. The recipe is simple enough you can double, triple or quadruple it according to need. 

Makes a great after-school snack with some graham crackers. 


2/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. baking cocoa
pinch of salt

Place all the ingredients in a quart jar (made it more fun for Kaity to mix) or bowl; mix well. Store in sealed container. (I ran through the blender for a smoother texture).

Use about 1 TB. per 1 cup milk, dissolving in a little hot water before adding the cold milk.  Or use it to make hot cocoa...winter is coming!

It may take a few times to figure out the 'just right' amount for you and your family, but won't you all have a good time doing that??
