Cornstarch is the additive. I had to look at the bag. Not sure if it makes the difference in smoothing it out or not but I now have a stockpile of the stuff.
I made some this weekend and totally screwed it up. I bought Herseys hot chocolate because Harris Teeter didn't have any Quik. I fixed it but DANG this is one expensive hot choc mix. The funny thing, my daughter claims this is the best batch I've ever made. It's proudly displayed in my new house on the shelves next to my window. I fixed my boo boo by doubling the powdered sugar, dark choc powder and adding Quik. It taste great and I'll probably never be able to duplicate it again.
