BEST Instant WHITE Cocoa Mix

Best Instant White Cocoa Mix

When you want to indulge in a bit of sophistication, this delightful drink will definitely satisfy.

My incredibly talented friend Christine Christina Leonhardt told me about her white hot chocolate drink. Thank you Christine!

Then a fabulous reader emailed in and said she added in pudding to the mix, which of course I just had to try, and it is even better! She used regular cook & serve, I used instant, so you can choose. Thank you for your suggestion my reader friend!

After a few tweaks and experimenting, I think this is perfection. You’ll have to give it a try.

Pulse until the chocolate chips and candy bar are in very small pieces.

Store the mix in a jar with a tight fitting lid or a zip lock bag.

Use 2 Tbl. (or more, depending on how rich you like your hot cocoa) in 6 oz. of boiling water.

Stir to melt the mix into the water.

  • Patti says:

    I really want to try this RIGHT NOW, but I don’t have any white chocolate.

  • Betty Taylor says:

    Oh, my, this sounds delicious! I am not eating sweets anymore, but if I did, this would be something I would have!!

  • I am absolutely in love with hot chocolate! LOVE this mix. Thanks for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.

  • Oh, I love white chocolate! Perfect for a cold, snowy night! I’d love it if you’d share this at my link party, going on now!

  • Jhanis says:

    mmmm I can almost smell the goodness!

  • Stopping by to wish you and your family a Happy Holiday Season~ Lynn

  • Oooh…This sounds really yummy. Thanks for sharing it at this week’s Holiday Roundup for Wonderful Wednesday. Now I’m pinning it!
    I love to have a warm cup of something in the evenings, after I’m done with my blogging stuff, because my hands are usually freezing from sitting at the computer (right next to a window). =0)

    • MytMouse says:

      Wow! This is so decadent & delicious! I just drank a cup & it tastes like more! I make another hot cocoa that includes cook & serve pudding mix so I added 1 3oz box of cook & serve vanilla pudding & blended that in with the other ingredients & had another cup. It was even more delicious & creamier!

      • Now you are a GENIUS! I’ve got to start tweaking and see what I can come up with my friend. You’ve got a great idea there and thank you so much for sharing it with us. Please visit often and chat anytime.

        • MytMouse says:

          Hi Carrie, I am indulging in another cup of gourmet hot cocoa! I followed your recipe & made milk chocolate hot cocoa by using a Lindt milk chocolate bar, milk chocolate chips & added a 3 oz box of cook & serve chocolate pudding. Mmmmm! I hope you try it! I had to try a cup to make sure it as delicious as your white cocoa because I am sending 1 jar of each to a friend who is recovering from surgery. She will love them! Thanks!

          • THANK YOU so much for your idea of adding the pudding mix! As you can see from the edited recipe I did include your modification and because I don’t know your name (though I do have an email out asking for name and permission to give full credit), I did give you a shout-out. It turned out so much richer with your addition of the pudding. Fabulous and way to go!!! Please let me know of any other terrific ideas of you have and stop by often.

  • Kristan says:

    How many servings will this make. I need to serve about 60!!

    • I’m so glad you are making this amazing drink Kristan, it’s SSSOOO good! I believe it will serve about 8- 10, but I like my drinks strong, and some like it a little less flavorful. And it also depends on the size of cups you are using. So personally, I would make 10 -12 batches to be safe. And if there are any leftovers, you can use it yourself over the winter, or gift it this holiday season in cute containers from the dollar store! Enjoy and let us know how your guests like it:)

  • Sue says:

    Is the non dairy creamer for this recipe liquid?

    • Carrie Groneman says:

      Hello, no, it’s dry creamer. Like Coffee Mate POWDER creamer. Thank you for asking and I hope you enjoy:)

  • Janis says:

    Can this be made with milk? I’m looking for a good recipe to go inside my hot cocoa bombs. 🙂

    • Carrie Groneman says:

      Hello Janis,
      I’ve heard of the hot cocoa bombs, but I haven’t tried the yet. I haven’t tried this particular recipe with milk instead of water either. I think it might work? It can’t hurt, right? Please let me know. Thanks

  • N Monroig says:

    Is this shelf stable? And how long does it stay good?

    • Carrie Groneman says:

      Hello, you can definitely keep it in you pantry or cupboard in a cool dry place for approximately 3-4 months. Since it contains grated chocolate with the other ingredients combined, I would not recommend keeping it longer. I personally have not had any issues and as long as it’s not in a warm area, it shouldn’t spoil. Enjoy:)
