Hot Chocolate on the cheap

Well since winter seems to be here to stay here's a cheap recipe for hot chocolate that will help you stay warm with credits to the Tightwad Gazette by Amy Dacyczyn... a good book to check out if you're looking for ways to save some cash, or just wonder to do with those odd things around the house that you don't want to throw away. (I'm fairly certain Amy throws away NOTHING!). And best yet the Seattle Public Library has it so you can check it out for FREE!!!

1/3 cup dry milk
1 teaspoon cocoa
1 teaspoon sugar
Mix above together and add 1 cup hot water.

This would be great for camping too if you're trying to avoid high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils as most mixes that don't require milk have those things in them. You could also try soy milk powder if you wanted to go vegan.

Give it a try and let us all know what you think! (you may have to fiddle with the recipe a bit if you have a sweeter tooth)
