    See, where I come from, thats hot chocolate. NOT hot cocoa. Hot cocoa is cooked in a pot over a low heat ( simmered) and it has just a pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg in it.

    My mom has a recipie for what we call "Russian Tea," and it's REALLY REALLY good!

    Equal Parts Tang and Country Time Lemonaid mix (I know, I know)
    All Spice

    Mix the tang and country time together, then stir in all spice and cinnamon untill you can see them in the mixture (not a whole lot, she just kinda, plays with it, ya know?).

    Spoon soome into a cup, pour boiling water over it.



    Now, if I could just figure out a way to make it WITHOUT tang and country time, I'd be all set! :D

    Didn't show you the tuna, peanut butter, canned veggies, canned fruit, canned meat, powdered Gatorade, powdered lemonade, chicken and beef bullion, coffee, tea, sugar, salt, spices, honey, pasta, wheat, rice, oats, beans or bullets either. :D Then again, you didn't ask. :)

    I don't do cocoa or coffee beans. Freeze dried coffee and powdered cocoa are pretty stable for a few years on the shelf.

    My mom used to bring that to deer camp! But she also added a bit of the powdered/instant lipton tea to it! We used to get a thermos of it to take out with us in the morning while we would sit and wait for deer!
    Now my dad--different story he took the Russian Tea and added a bit of Apple barrel schnapps to it first thing -- said it kept him warmer that way!:eek::D

    Dry Cocoa Mix

    This is the cocoa recipe I use. It is from Hot Cocoa Mix | Hillbilly Housewife

    4 cups instant nonfat dry milk powder
    1-1/2 to 2 cups sugar
    1 cup powdered non-dairy creamer
    2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

    Measure all of the ingredients into a dry clean bowl. Use a whisk to sort of stir everything together. Put in a sealed canister. You could add 1/4 cup of instant coffee for a nice mocha flavor.
    To Prepare: Spoon 1/3 cup of the hot cocoa mix into a cup or mug. Add boiling water to the top, stir and serve.
