Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe, Perfect for gift giving!

When I was little, I remember my Mom making homemade hot cocoa for my brothers and I during the winter.  We would spend hours outside sledding, making snow forts and having snow ball fights.  My Mom would make a big crock pot full of Hot Cocoa that would was waiting for us when we came in.  It was the absolute best hot chocolate that I have ever had. So I wanted to share this Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix recipe with you today.    
The only way to drink hot cocoa is with LOTS of whip cream and chocolate on top!  Delicious!
If you follow my recipe, it makes a ton of mix and would be perfect little gifts for teachers, friends, or neighbors.  I found these little flip top containers at The Dollar Tree and they work perfect.  
Making a large batch in a crock pot at Holiday get togethers is always a big hit too!
