Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix

I was looking around the Internet for a homemade Hot Cocoa Mix and found the following that sounded really good at the follow link:

Mom's Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe

11 cups powdered milk
1 cup confectioners' sugar
11 ounces powdered non-dairy coffee creamer
2 pounds Nesquick powdered chocolate milk mix
4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (like you use in baking)
1 box instant chocolate pudding mix

This makes 16 cups Hot Chocolate Mix
You mix all these ingredients together. Store in an airtight container.
Use 1/3 mix to 2/3 cup hot water when making hot chocolate.

Note: I found a box of Powdered Milk that weighed 1 lb. 9.6 oz. which makes 8 quarts. This measured a little under the 11 cups in the recipe but it worked fine and the largest Nesquick now comes in a 1 lb. 14 oz. and so that's what I used. I found a store brand of creamer that came in an 11 oz. size.

Now, never leaving a good thing well enough alone I had to put my own little touch to it so I added:
1 more tablespoon of cocoa
1 box of Jello instant French Vanilla Pudding

This could be divided up and put in jars, labeled and decorated for gifts.

Oh, and I did of course taste this and I thought it was pretty good.

My favorite premade mix is Stephen's gourmet hot cocoa. To go to their website:
