Kids had a chance to mix it up on Monday, making Ms. Mary’s delicious hot cocoa mix—just perfect for a cold day!

Here’s the recipe, in case you want to make a batch with your kids this winter:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups instant nonfat milk or powdered milk

Directions

  1. Sift the sugar and cocoa in a large bowl to get rid of any lumps. Stir in the powdered sugar. Whisk until everything is combined.
  2. To make cocoa, combine equal parts mix and hot water. Try starting with 1/2 cup mix and 1/2/ cup hot water.

During our program,the kids also used common kitchen ingredients to make salt-dough art.
