Makes approximately 7 cups cocoa mix
10-14 candy canes
2 1/4 cups dry milk powder
1 cup powdered creamer
1 ¼ cup cocoa powder
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon corn starch
Finely crush candy canes in a food processor. If you don't have a food processor, place candy canes in a freezer zip-top bag, seal, and crush with a rolling pin or meat mallet. Set aside.
In a large bowl stir together all ingredients, including the crushed candy canes, until well combined and there are no lumps. For a smoother consistency, mix in food processor or blender.
Pour cocoa mix into jars or a plastic storage container.
To make hot chocolate, combine 1/3 cup mix with 1 cup hot water or milk.
