Recipes for just a few cups:
 
SUPER RICH HOT CHOCOLATE MASTER MIX
3 cups nonfat dry powdered dry milk
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
 
Put ingredients in blender, or food processor. (Irecommend doing half a batch at one time!) Whir it around only until it is “finely ground”. If you whir toolong it will clump up in the blender. Store in an airtight container. Use heaping tablespoons per mug of boiling water.
 
VARIATIONS:
* Cocoa-Mocha – Add 1/2 cup instant coffee to the mix.
* Orange-Cinnamon Sip – Add 1 tsp. of grated orange peel and 2 tsp. cinnamon
* Scotchy’s Cup – Decrease chocolate chips by 1 cup, and add 1 cup butterscotch chips instead!
* Peanut Butter Cup – Decrese chocolate chips asabove, and add 1 cup peanutbutter chips.
* Minty Hot Chocolate – Decrease chocolate chipsas above, and add 1 cup mint- chocolate chips.
* Rasberry-Coco-Loco – Decrease chocolate chipsas above, and add 1 cup of Raspberry-chocolate chips.
* Milk Chocolate Chocolate – Decrease chocolate chips as above, and add 1 cup of Milk Chocolate chips!
* Malted Milk Chocolate – Prepare as for Milk Chocolate Chocolate, except substitute 1/2 cup of malted milk    powder for 1/2 cup of powdered milk.

 
HOT COCOA MIX
3 cups powdered dry milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
3/4 cup sugar1 dash of salt
 
Again, it’s as easy as stir and store! Use 3 heaping tablespoons per mug of hot water!
 
HOT WHITE CHOCOLATE
3 cups powdered dry milk
2 tsp. vanilla powder (This is a product used in place of vanilla extract. It is available in most gourmet food store, or bakers’ supply shops).
2 tsp. grated orange zest
2 cups of white chocolate chips
Whir all ingredients in blender only until finely ground! 
 
Again, do it in two batches, and don’t overgrind or it will clump up in the blender. Use 3 heaping tablespoons per mug of hot water. This is particularly satisfying with a cinnamon stick as a stirrer.
 
MEXICAN COCOA OLE’!
1/3 cup light brown sugar 
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla powder (See recipe for Hot WhtieChocolate!)
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
