Using powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar helps the cocoa mix dissolve better in hot water.

I HAVE MADE THIS RECIPE FOR MANY YEARS BECAUSE IT USES MILK, BUT I DO ADD CREAMER TO THE RECIPE ALSO. EITHER FLAVORED OR REGULAR. STORE BOUGHT COCOA DOESN'T HAVE MILK IN THE PACKAGES.

Hot Cocoa Mix in a Jar

Our Granddaughter loves her hot cocoa. After adding the mini marshmallows she then uses a candy cane to stir it. As the candy cane melts it gives the cocoa a great peppermint flavor. What kid doesn't like candy canes!!
