Homemade Hot Chocolate

I started making this Hot Chocolate recipe at the start of this winter season
and it has now become a staple in our household. 
I make it in big batches and keep the mix in a canning jar so is ready whenever we are. 
If you are feeling creative you can always add more cinnamon or a candy cane to the Hot Chocolate. 
and Don't forget the whip cream on top. 

This recipe make roughly 5 1/2 cups

3 1/2 cups of sugar or splenda 
2 1/4 cups cocoa powder 
1 tablespoon table salt 
a pinch of nutmeg 
a pinch cinnamon

Whole Milk for serving

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt. Whisk well. Store the mixture in an airtight container. 
For individual servings, pour 1 cup milk into a mug and microwave on high just until hot. I add about 2 tablespoons of the cocoa mix, and whisk or stir to dissolve (You can add more or less of the cocoa mix, depending on how you like your hot chocolate).
