My son loves to have cocoa in the morning. He calls it cocoa-majoko (cute, huh?). We were out of packets, so I was going to pick some up at the store. Then I made the mistake of looking at the ingredients….corn syrup solids, vegetable oil, sodium aluminosilicate.
I figured there had to be a way to make it myself without all those extras. I found this recipe and set to work. I found the powdered milk at Grocery Outlet for just $1.99 and had all the other ingredients on hand. This recipe is so easy even a 2 1/2 year old can make it!
Make Your Own Cocoa Mix
2 cups powdered milk
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
To serve, add 2-3 TBSP of mix to hot water or milk and stir. Marsh-pillows (another one of my son’s words) are optional!
