Platonic Hot Chocolate Recipe

As long as I'm  carrying on in this ridiculous manner about platonic hot chocolate, I thought I'd share a recipe with you. As hot chocolates go, this one comes the closest to embodying the perfect form of hot-chocolateness as any I've ever tasted... this is the hot chocolate whose shadow Swiss Miss sees and dreams about while she's sitting in Plato's cave. Enjoy...

Hot Chocolate Mix

1 lb. box powdered sugar
2 lb. box Quik Mix
16 oz. jar Cremora
8 qt. box powdered milk
5 t. cinnamon

Mix well. Fill mug 1/3 full with mix, then add hot water and stir. YUMMY!

And, today's Thankful List addition:

18. I am thankful for days when I'm not having allergy problems. Today isn't one of them. But unhampered breathing is really, really nice. Don't take it for granted.

  1. I love that recipe it's one of my favorites. Tastes better to me with milk though than water - I'm a spoiled child for milk!

  2. That's the same recipe Grandma gave me...must be a Clark woman hand-me-down. Love it!

  3. I love your painting! And I can sympathize with the breathing situation. Hope you feel better soon!

  4. This is the best hot chocolate! Whenever I have traveled and drink hot chocolate, I always compare it to this recipe. I remember your mom giving me my first taste sometime back in high school and I was hooked! Thanks for sharing!
