So I will post these 2 recipes to help WARM the cockles of your HEART!.....and maybe your hands too!
These 2 recipes have gotten me through a couple of FREEZING cold winters!!!
My good friend Sherri, gave me the recipe for HOT cocoa, that IS SOOOOO Divine!
It is creamy & tasty, which some of you might find unbelievable....
that you can have a cup of cocoa with those 2 things at once!
BUT there's proof in the PUDDING!
literally....there is instant PUDDING in this recipe!!!
Creamy, DREAMY, HOT COCOA MIX
*4 C powdered sugar
*4 C cocoa powder drink mix (Quik or store brand is what I use)
*1 Lrg package INSTANT pudding
*1 1/2 C dry NON-DAIRY cream powder
*1/2 tsp salt
*8 C Instant nonfat milk powder
*3 cups Mini Marshmallows
(rosie tip: Let the marshmallow sit out on you counter a couple of days to dry out a bit, this prevents them from sticking!)
In a large, bowl combine powdered milk, powdered sugar. Cocoa drink mix, dry Pudding package & Non dairy creamer & salt. Mix really well to get out any clumps. Next stir in marshmallows.
Store in a 6 cup container with a tight fitting lid. Label with date & contents. Store in a cool, dry place. Use with in 6 months.
Recipe: add 3-4 Tlbs to 1 cup hot water.
Here is another tasty drink mix:
It is MY recipe of the take on the hot Russian tea, you might order in a fru-fru tea room!
Rosie"lious" spiced orange "Wassail" mix

*6 C granulated sugar

*3 tsp. ground Cloves
*4 1/2 tsp ground Allspice
*1 1/2 tsp Ground Mace
