Funny you should ask that... just last week, DH brought home a cookbook from folks in his job across the state.  This recipe was there:

Instant Hot Chocolate Mix

1 8 Quart box instant milk

2 pound*

1 8 ounce jar non-dairy creamer

1 C powdered sugar


Mix in large container. Use 3 tsp per cup of boiling water, or syronger to taste.

* The recipe just said 2 pound, I think it meant cocoa?  Since it's an instant hot chocolate mix, and doesn't list cocoa, I think that would be what the 2 pound is... That is what caught my attention and made me laugh, a hot chocolate mix that doesn't have chocolate listed?  Hmmm... Anyhow, you may be able to scale the recipe down and try it.  Hope it works for you!

Here's a recipe that I found.

Cocoa Mix


  • 6 1/2 cups powdered milk
  • 1 (5 ounce) package non-instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup powdered chocolate drink mix
  • 1/2 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. In a large bowl, combine powdered milk, chocolate pudding mix, chocolate drink mix powder, creamer, confectioners' sugar, and cocoa. Divide the mixture between two 1 quart jars. Seal, and decorate as desired. These can be stored in a dry area for up to 3 months.
  2. Attach a tag with the following instructions: Hot Cocoa: Dissolve 1/3 cup cocoa mix in 1 cup boiling water.

Here is the recipe I have used:  2 cups dry milk

                                                 1/4 cup cocoa

                                                 1/3 cup dry coffee creamer, like Creamora

                                                 1 cup powdered sugar

Mix and store. I have found out that when making a large batch, if I didn't use is up, it got a funny taste to it, like the plastic container I had it stored in. So now I make this smaller batch. Hope this helps. Heidi
