Hot chocolate is one of our favorite morning beverages and we make it at home from fresh harvest cacao beans. The beans are sun dried, cooked and grinded then placed into molds to form blocks or bars of raw unsweetened chocolate. We call them "tablea".
Tip: you can place leftovers in popsicle molds to make chocolate popsies.

Tips for saving money on hot chocolate. Post your ideas.
I've found that hot chocolate mix is cheaper in cans than the pre-measured single serving packets. And I can mix it without using so much. In my opinion, it tastes better, and I save money on every cup.
Make your own mix. 8 cup box of powdered milk, 1 lb bag powdered sugar, 1 lb canister non-dairy creamer, 1 lb canister hot cocoa mix (not unsweetened cocoa). Mix altogether keep in air tight container. This lasts forever, and is sooooo good. Mix with hot water to your own liking of how chocolaty you like it. My grandbabies love it especially with marshmallows on top.
