Value or cheap hot choclate mix (could also use coco powder and sugar)
any dairy like creamer (non dairy powdered is not a good sub)
about half a table spoon of sugar
Optional: whipped cream or whipped topping
to get started my value brand says 3 table spoons of mix. I add that and some sugar to the .
then I add some (not sure how much I don't bother to measure) dairy like creamer.
I tend to pre-stir everything to get clumps out.
then add hot water enough to fill the cup. my travel mug is about a 16 ounces and I just fill it.
Optional a spoon full of whipped topping or some whipped cream.
There is it better tasting cheap hot chocolate.
