CONNIE’S GOURMET HOT COCOA

  • (1) can of store brand Hot Cocoa Mix (don’t buy the good stuff)
  • (1) small box of Chocolate or Chocolate Fudge Instant Pudding Mix

Pour the hot cocoa mix into a large bowl.  Add the pudding and mix well.  The pudding just slightly thickens the hot cocoa and brings out more chocolate flavor.  Measure according to the directions on hot cocoa can.

CHOCOLATE-COVERED

CHERRY HOT COCOA

  • (1) can of store brand Hot Cocoa Mix (don’t buy the good stuff)
  • (1) small box of Chocolate or Chocolate Fudge Instant Pudding Mix
  • (1) packet Cherry Kool-Aid
  • 1/2 cup sugar

In a large bowl, mix the sugar, Kool-Aid, and pudding; mix well.  Add the can of hot cocoa mix and mix again.  Measure according to the directions on hot cocoa can.  You can use any flavor of Kool-Aid – Orange and Strawberry are good too!  If you want more “cherry” flavor, double the sugar and use 2 packages of Kool-Aid.

And like I said yesterday, the best part about this cocoa is that you can make a big batch for under $3.00 and trust me when I tell you… your friends will think this is Godiva Hot cocoa!  It’s that rich and that good!

Thanks so much for being with me today!  I am honored to be your Stampin’ Up online instructor and Demonstrator!  Go enjoy your day!
