TRIED ‘N’ TRUE: Large Batch Hot Chocolate will hit the spot

I got a cookbook in Princeton, Ill., this past summer when we went to visit our friends, Don and Amanda Condit and also Bill and Eileen Knapp. We had a girls’ day out and went to Princeton. It’s a neat town, filled with antiques stores. We had a lot of fun looking and not buying.

Amanda and Eileen know I love cookbooks, and so here I am with “More Pantry Treasurers from Ohio Council of Catholic Women.” With Christmas coming, we can’t forget the kids, young and old alike. Just make these ahead and keep in a container to use as needed. Thanks, Eileen and Amanda.

Large Batch Hot Chocolate

20 quarts instant powdered milk

1 lb. box powered sugar

2 lbs. can Nestle chocolate

16 oz. Coffee Mate or 20 oz. Cremora

• Mix all together. Store in container. Use 2-3 heaping tablespoons or as desired per cup.

• Fill with hot water.

• Try something different, use flavored Cremora, that is if the kids like that flavor.
