Instant Strawberry Hot Cocoa Mix

Rumor has it that today is National Cocoa Day! I’m not sure that pink strawberry hot cocoa was what they had in mind when the holiday was created, but that’s okay. It’s delicious and makes a super cute gift-in-a-jar. 

This just takes four ingredients to make! You’ll need high quality white chocolate, instant nonfat dry milk, Nestle Strawberry Nesquick and pink (or white) mini marshmallows. When prepared, the hot cocoa has a wonderful strawberries-and-cream flavor. Strawberry milk fans will love this! I’ve been sipping on it regularly because I am strawberry milk crazy!

I found these Ball Sharing Jars at the grocery store, but they are also available for purchase online. They have a pretty shape and look a little fancier than the usual canning jar.

The powdered milk in the recipe means you need nothing more than hot water and a mug to enjoy this cozy treat. However, my favorite way to enjoy it is stirred into hot cashew milk.

Instant Strawberry Hot Cocoa Mix
Yields 2 1/3 cups hot cocoa mix (two gifts)

Wash and dry the canning jars thoroughly before using.

7 ounces high quality white chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup (42g) instant nonfat dry milk
1 cup (110g) Nestle Strawberry Nesquick powdered drink mix
2 canning jars, 16 ounce capacity
2 cups (86g) pink or white mini marshmallows

Place the white chocolate in a food process and pulse until chopped into small pieces. Add the dry milk and strawberry drink mix. Process until the mixture is well combined and no large chunks of white chocolate remain.

Divide the mix between two 16 oz. jars. Top with each jar with 1 cup of mini marshmallows. Lid the jar and add a tag with preparation instructions.

Tag directions: Combine two tablespoons strawberry cocoa mix with 6 ounces hot water or 6 ounces hot milk.

According to my calendar, on December 19th I ostensibly signed special ordered books at The Strand and then took my two year-old to a holiday party, but I know the truth, which is that I was actually reading this hilarious piece on Bon Appetit from Alex Delany in which he complains that winter cocktails are usually too unsubtly wintery, that he doesn’t need “seven sticks of cinnamon, half a holly tree or a metric ton of cloves, mulling spices or liquor that tastes like cookies” to entice him to drink booze in the winter, and texting my husband that we should make boulevardiers that night after the kids went to sleep.

what you'll need, plus ice

Boulevardier, according to Google, means “a wealthy, fashionable socialite,” (aka “what is the opposite of Deb?”) but from that day on, it will be forever be the official drink of the winter of 2017-2018 (this is the official cookie, by the way) because we’ve found it downright habit-forming.
