Homemade Hot Chocolate

Dear Heloise: Please print the Heloise HOMEMADE HOT CHOCOLATE recipe again. I wanted to make it for the holidays. I read your column every day. Thank you. -- Judy in Virginia

Judy, it's my pleasure. Here's what you'll need:

2 cups powdered milk

1/4 cup cocoa

1 cup confectioners' sugar

Dash of salt

1/3 cup powdered nondairy creamer

1 to 2 tablespoons malted milk powder (optional)

Combine these ingredients thoroughly and store in a tightly sealed container. To serve, spoon about 4 tablespoons of the mix into a mug, fill with boiling water and mix. You also can use equal amounts of sugar substitute and malted milk powder instead of the creamer to make a richer-tasting drink, but then use only 1 tablespoon and an 8-ounce cup. Enjoy! -- Heloise
