Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

I do believe that if you make this hot cocoa mix and just keep it in your pantry all winter long, you will never ever feel the need to buy a box of that store bought hot cocoa mix (with chemicals and hydrogenated oils and stuff) again!  This is simple and delicious and you can put it in cello bags or jars and give it as a gift for your neighbors for a Christmas gift.  Just be sure to include the directions so that they make it with milk and not hot water!  :)
