Mennonite Monday - Cocoa MIx

Mennonite Monday started because I wanted to make recipes from the Bethesda Mennonite Church Cookbooks (both the yellow and the white cookbook for those of you who own them). I also wanted to take pictures of each recipe that I made, so I would know for future reference what the recipe should look like. I am by no means a great cook, but I think it will be fun to try new and different recipes each week. Not all of these recipes are for ethnic Mennonite food, but the women from Henderson know how to cook, so I can safely say that these recipes will be good. Check back each Monday for a new recipe and feel free to leave a comment if you have a favorite recipe from these cookbooks, or if you have some tips on what I should make and how I should make it.
With the surprisingly cold weather that turned up this spring I thought it would be nice to make Cocoa Mix (pg 1W). To be honest, this was not may favorite recipe.  It wasn't sugary or chocolatey enough for me.  I'm guessing that our tastes are inclined to like more sweet flavors now then they were when this recipe was written.  If I were to make it again, I would cut the dry milk in half and keep the same amount of cocoa and powdered sugar.  Here is the recipe. 

Cocoa Mix
10 cups dry milk (powdered) 
5 Tbl cocoa
2 cups powdered sugar

Mix and store in air-tight container.  For serving add 3 Tbl mix to one cup hot water; stir to dissolve.  

 Dry milk

 Cocoa (not Nestle Quick)

 Powder Sugar 

 Mix it all together. 

 All mixed together.  You can tell it is not as dark as the hot chocolate mix we are use to. 

All mixed up and ready to drink.  

You can give this recipe a try, but try it on a smaller scale with more cocoa and powdered sugar.
