Bulk Drink Mixes, Fun and Easy Gift Giving

With a large family we can run through a box of hot coco in one sitting. SOoooo the easiest thing to do is to make it all in bulk and keep in a container to use. It's way cheaper and super delicious!!

Along with using some of the mixes below, they make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, bus drivers, and friends. You can use a mason jar with an oak tag for directions, or just print a sticker! Make them your own! Personalize how you wish, We had dipped plastic spoons in chocolate let it harden and attach to hot coco mix. Candy cane can be added as well. :) 

Here are some ideas:

Hot Coco
1 8 Qt box of Non-fat dry milk
1 6 oz jar of nondairy creamer (aka Creamora)
1 lb Powdered Sugar
1 16oz container Nestles Quik
Mix all together store in airtight container, use 1/2 to 3/4 C mix to hot mug of water.

Here's another Hot Coco, I really like this one.
1 C Coco Powder
21 oz of Creamora
2 lb box powered sugar
1 large box of instant pudding. you choose choc, or vanilla
8 C powered milk
Mix it well. I put this in my kitchen aid and use the whisk attachment to crush the dry milk really well.
1/4 C to hot water.

Russian Tea
3/4 C Instant unsweetened tea
2 C tang
1 1/2 C Sugar
1/2 t ground cloves
1 T cinnamon
Mix all together, store in airtight container. 1 1/2 to 2 T to a  cup of boiling water.

The Russian Tea is great if your beginning to get sick, I swear it helps fight off colds! :)

FireSide Coffee
2 C quik chocolate Mix
2 C coffee creamer (dry)
1 C instant coffee
1 1/2 C Sugar
1 t Cinnamon
1 t nutmeg

Mix well, add 2-3 heaping spoonfuls to a cup of hot milk! Delicious!!!

The beauty about bulk is that you can adjust ingredients for your families needs.
Super fun to make with the kiddos and fun to drink!
