Make great hot cocoa that just as good or better then Starbucks (a lot cheaper too). Take one envelope of any kind of cocoa mix, pour in your favorite mug. Then add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of flavored creamer (I like French vanilla), and then pour the rest of the way with hot water!

Add milk to hot chocolate or cocoa! I worry about Hubby and Son getting enough calcium, so I often add some cold milk to their hot cocoa or chocolate. It cools the drink down enough for Son, and adds a nice flavor to inexpensive powdered mixes.

I'm making hot chocolate with milk and melted chocolate, and a few other ingredients. Does anyone know, if I make it ahead of time can it be reheated without separating?
By Diana R.
Reheating should not be a problem. Even if there is some separation, reheating and stirring or mixing should result in the same chocolate milk.
