    I LOVE Timmy's of course! (I am Cdn!) But you could probably buy a good mix from any coffee shop, like Starbucks. They are probably better quality than the Swiss Miss. Also, for extra creaminess (is that a word?? LOL) use milk, it makes it way better!

    I love Candy Cane Hot Chocolate too!!!!

      ok I have the ingredients but sadly no proportions, my mother does not measure anything...but here are the ingredients that she told me she uses. If I can get her to give me an estimate on how much of each I'll post that later.

      powdered milk
      coco mix
      powdered sugar
      powdered creamer

          Just wanted to update on the two that I have tried since starting this thread...

          I bought my husband one of those Keurig pod coffee machines and I tried the hot chocolate that came with it. Eh. It was ok, but not great.

          I also bought "Winter" from Crate & Barrel and tried that for the first time yesterday. OMG, it was reallllly good. Like dangerously good. The only problem is that you use 3 tablespoons per 1/2 of water. That's like 4 sips of hot chocolate. And it's 160 calories for that little bit, so doubling it is ridiculous. But I drank it yesterday and love it. Oh the other bad thing is, it comes in this tin that seems big, but since you have to use 3 table spoons per serving, there are only 11 servings in the tin. Seems like not nearly enough for $15, or however much it was. Although, it's the best homebrew one I've had, so I'll probably be buying more!
