Hot Cocoa

In The Simpsons Movie Ned Flanders makes Bart the world's best hot cocoa that made my mouth water and my tummy warm. Just thinking about it warms my gut. I fully intend to make myself some as soon as I get the DVD of the movie and transcribe the recipe.

In the mean time, ATK sent this recipe via email. Best-Ever Hot Cocoa Mix

This hot cocoa mix can be stored in an airtight container for three months. It uses two unusual ingredients: White chocolate chips give the cocoa a soft, creamy texture and escalate the chocolate flavor; and the cornstarch in the confectioners' sugar (an ingredient manufacturers add to prevent clumping) helps thicken the cocoa.

Makes about 20 servings

3 cups nonfat dry milk
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 cups Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine ingredients in large bowl. Working in two batches, pulse ingredients in food processor until chocolate is finely ground. To make hot cocoa, stir 1/3 cup mix into 1 cup hot milk. Top with whipped cream or mini marshmallows.
