We made it home safely from our long weekend, and I will post details and pictures later this evening.
My husband has been begging me for two weeks to share my recipe for “Galactic Cowgirl Coffee,” so share it I shall. There really is no coffee in the drink, and name was given by a college friend of mine (she thought it was catchy) to a homemade hot cocoa drink with a peppermint stick added as a holiday treat. So I shall share my recipe for my mom’s homemade hot cocoa mix with peppermint (optional), a.k.a. Galactic Cowgirl Coffee.
Hot Cocoa Mix
- 8 qt. box of powdered milk
- 7 oz. dry cream
- 1 lb. Nestle Quick
- 1/2 lb. powdered sugar (I use less)
- cinnamon (to taste)
Use 3-4 tbsp of mix per mug of hot water.
For an added treat or special holiday drink, add a peppermint stick or small candy cane to the hot cocoa.
