It it's a pretty simple recipe, and doesn't take up too much time either. We make a giant batch of hot chocolate so it lasts a little longer, but I'll give you the measurements for a normal size batch as well.
All this recipe calls for is baking cocoa (we've tried it with dark chocolate baking cocoa as well, and that's pretty amazing), arrowroot powder, sea salt, sugar and instant nonfat dry milk.
First, you'll mix all your ingredients together in a large bowl.

And then you are done! Go ahead and store it in a Tupperware container or a couple big mason jars - whatever kind of container you have laying about. For measuring it out, we've found 2-3 tablespoons of mix typically works the best for your standard size mug.
Measurements for Standard Recipe:
2 1/2 cups non-fat powdered milk
2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa
2 teaspoons arrowroot powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Measurements for Giant Recipe:
5 cups non-fat powdered milk
4 cups sugar
2 cups cocoa
4 teaspoons arrowroot powder
1 teaspoon salt
Makes 5 1/2 cups or 11 cups, respectively.
Using a food processor, combine all ingredients thoroughly until no lumps or visible bits of brown or white can be seen.
