I like to make my own large batch of dry hot coco mix at the begining of the winter. I put some in bottles and give it out as gifts then the rest is left for me. Here is the recipe if any of you are interested in trying it.

1 pound Nestles Quick
1/2 pound powdered sugar
6 oz. non dairy creamer
1 8oz. box non fat dry milk

Mix ingredients together and store in an air tight container.

To serve, add 4-5 T. per 1 cup hot water. Top with mini marshmallows if desired.

If you think that Cadbury drinking chocolate is good then I really don't wanna even imagine wht the Hershy stuff is like! I have tried plenty of the cadbury stuff ( since I am British ) :)

I don't know if you can get it over there but try and find some "Spanish hot chocolate" Valor is a good make if you can find it :)

Spanish hot chocolate is REALLY chocolate flavoured and it's so thick you can stand your spoon in it! My advice is to try and find it if you can. You will love it :)

leaf storm, you don't like the Cadbury? I've always wondered how it's considered in England, if it's an average, mass-market brand like our Hershey's or not.

Yeah, I do like chocolate and I do like Cadbury. :) It's mass market but it's pretty good. We have better brands though. Try to get some "Galaxy chocolate! Even better get Lindt, if you can. Lindt comes from Switzerland and is VERY VERY VERY good. If you by the dark version it's 75% cacoa!

Cadbury is nice ( for sure better than American chocolate which on the whole is not very good. SORRY :oops: )

I would say for hot chocolate Britain isnt very good ( but then im really picky )

Really, if you can find some Spanish hot chocoalte, GO FOR IT! Trust me, im a chocoholic :D Like I said, its VERY high in chocolate flavour and so thick you can stand your spoon in it. Now THAT'S what I call hot chocolate :D Although, even I can't get it and have to pick it up when I go Spain or get Spanish friends to send me some packets :) But if you search around you maybe able to find it. Look for "Valor" and maybe somebody sells it there? :)
