We had a hill out back of our house in Lincoln Co, WV that would come alive with laughter when the snow was deep enought to sleigh ride. Basil would build a big bondfire in the middle of a large field and all the kids and neighbors were ready to have some fun.
Everyone was bundled up with two pair of pants, toboggans, gloves and heavy coats. Even the mom’s and dad’s were climbing to the top of the hill and doing a belly buster on their kid’s sleigh. We would be outside for hours just climbing, sledding and then back up the hill.
I found a recipe back in the 60’s that we named B. Y. F. Cocoa Mix. (Baptist Youth Fellowship). This was also the hot drink I made for all the people that were sledding in our back yard.
In a very large Tupperware bowl or some sort of bowl that will seal add:
1 8quart box of nonfat dry milk
1 pound box of Quick Cocoa Mix
1 8oz. jar of non-dairy coffee creamer
1 cup of confectioner sugar
Just mix all the dry ingredients together and seal in the bowl
To make a cup of hot chocolate:
Add 1/3 cup of the dry cocoa mix to your cup and add hot water.
This is the BEST hot chocolate drink you ever tasted. It is an excellent recipe and will keep several months in the sealed bowl. Great for gathering of youth in the winter or holiday gatherings.
Please let me know if you make the mix and if you liked it.
