For hot chocolate use vanilla soy, rice or almond milk. Heat it up. After hot put in 2 or 3 teaspoons of cocoa and mix with a very small whisk (play from children cook set). Put in extra sweeter if needed. I don't use any extra sweeter with my soy milk and special dark Hershey's cocoa.
Thanks but that's not what I'm looking for. I make hot cocoa from scratch often at home. What I am looking for is something akin to nestle's hot cocoa mix - just add hot water. I can make scratch cocoa at home (almond milk, cocoa, sweetener, and maybe a little flavored extract for fun) but I want something I can make at work where hot water is readily available but time and stovetop not as much.
Complicating matters is avoiding soy as much as possible - I found a soy milk powder that I could use to make my own instant mix BUT soy and I are not BFFs.
