Another Hot Cocoa Mix

Last year at this time I posted a recipe for a hot chocolate mix using raw sugar. We thought it was great! But this year, I've improved on that by finding a recipe (here) to mix into milk instead of water. I'm not a real fan of dried milk and have been so blessed the past few months to have fresh, raw milk, so I wanted to make hot chocolate with it instead of the fake stuff. The only modifications I made were substituting raw sugar for refined and using Real Salt instead of refined salt. 

I don't believe I've ever had a better cup of hot cocoa in my life! And that with only three ingredients, plus the milk...

Hot Cocoa Mix
Yield: 5 3/4 cups of dry mix or 92 eight-ounce servings

3 1/2 c. raw sugar
2 1/4 c. powdered baking cocoa (no sugar)
1 Tb. salt (preferably Redmond Real Salt)
Whole milk for serving

In a large bowl, combine raw sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.

For individual servings, pour 1 c. milk into a microwave-safe mug and microwave on high, just until hot. Add 2 Tb. cocoa mix, and stir to dissolve. 
The website notes that the mix "will keep all winter if stored in an airtight container."

I will have to try this. David likes hot chocolate with milk. The stuff in the store has partially hydrogenated oils. Is your other recipe good for camping?

That's a good idea! I'm sure it would be.
