Hot chocolate anyone?

We are hot chocolate lovers in our house and the sudden blast of icy cold weather has had us running for the hot chocolate mix. I've had big mugs of hot chocolate waiting for the kids each afternoon when they've come in from school to warm them up and they've been having a mug each evening before bed.

Instead of paying $5 or more for ten single serve sachets (which are very nice indeed, but way too expensive) I make up a batch of Hot Chocolate Drink Mix for under $3 (using generic ingredients) that makes up around 30 serves of delicious hot chocolate.

Hot Chocolate Drink Mix
2 cups skim milk powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup coffee whitener (I use Coles Smartbuy)

In medium bowl, combine milk powder, sugar, coca, and coffee whitener. To serve, place 3 teaspoons cocoa mix in mug. Stir in 3/4 cup boiling water. Store the mix in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
