My kids love hot chocolate, one of the best mixes I have found is the Swiss Mix brand. You can buy it in either a canister that you can spoon out or in individual mix packages. You can also buy several different varieties like caramel, milk chocolate, with or without marshmallows, dark chocolate and butter-finger. My youngest son will make him a cup before school and usually one after school, which I do not mind because he adds milk into it after he heats it up with the water so I know he is getting a little more calcium. One of my favorite ways to make it is to add it to my coffee and it makes it a more special treat for me on a cold morning. You can several different sizes, the canister is in a 26 ounce and you can get the individual packets in 12, 24 and 48. If you have not tried the Swiss Miss brand by some odd chance I do suggest you do give it a try, it is rich and delicious. Make it with the water and add milk to it for a creamier taste.
