Some of you don’t have to wait as long as we do in Texas for that first cool snap to indulge in a mug of hot chocolate, the quintessential Christmas beverage. And why does it taste so much better from your favorite coffee shop than from your own home? Here’s the secret; I’m going to transform you into a hot chocolate barista armed with a no-fuss guaranteed to impress mug after yummy mug recipe.

In my family, we make a big deal about stockings. This hot chocolate mix is highly anticipated as a staple in the adult stockings. Or you can pick out one of those infamous teacher mugs, fill a small size ziplock bag with the Hug in a Mug mix, stuff it into the mug, tie a bow on the handle, and there you go; teacher gift is done! This will be one teacher gift not regifted!

Who gets your gift of a hug today?

1 1/2 lb. instant dry milk

12 oz plain dry coffee creamer (2 small jars)

2 1bs Nesquick

1 lb. powdered sugar (1 box or 1/2 a bag)

Optional: 1 bag mini marshmallows, 1 small bag semi-sweet chocolate chips

Toss and mix well all ingredients in large bowl and store in air-tight containers. For one large mug, use heaping 1/4 cup. Fancy up your steaming Hug in a Mug with a dollop of cream, peppermint or cinnamon stirring sticks, or add a tsp of instant coffee for a cappuccino treat.
