Pros:Warms body and soul.
Cons:Not the healthiest alternative.
The Bottom Line:
This is a great cocoa mix that warms the body on a chilly day. Great tasting.
On a cold evening, there is nothing more satisfying than a cup of hot chocolate or cocoa. I remember as a child drinking a cup with really feeling as though I was getting quite a treat. Now that I am an adult, this still continues to be a wonderful treat and luxury that takes little time to prepare. In a matter of a few seconds, you can take a cold wintry day into a splendid warm cozy feeling with one packet of Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix. This mix can be found at all grocery stores.

Each packet of Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix contains 1 ounce of a powdery mix that can be added to hot milk or water. Using milk rather than water will create a richer and creamier formula. I prefer using water myself but this mix allows for you to have an option. Each packet contains approximately 15-20 small freeze dried marshmallows that are automatically added when you dump the contents into a cup. The shelf life on these packets is substantial and can last up to a few years so it is a nice item to keep in your cupboard for those cold and chilly days.
In order to make Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix, you will need to empty the contents of one package into a cup. You will want to gradually add 6 ounces (approximately ¾) cup of hot milk or water. The powder stirs easily into the liquid and dissolves in a chocolate dream. You do not want to add the powder into the liquid as it makes it much more difficult to stir. The small marshmallows within the mix make their way to the top of the cup but do not last very long in the hot liquid. Typically, I end up taking the marshmallows out prior to adding the liquid because those little freeze-dried things are quite tasty. I always like to top of my hot chocolate with a little bit of whipped cream so I do not really need the marshmallows anyway. Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix can also be prepared in the microwave by warming the milk in the water first.
All in all, this is a great way to warm the body and soul and take a few moments to yourself. Swiss also offers the following flavors:
