*I am so picky about hot chocolate made with water because, even in the best recipes, it still doesn’t have that made with milk taste so I add an extra 2 cups of Nestle Quik to my recipe on top of what is written above for the perfect taste.

**You might add a package of white chocolate or cheesecake pudding for a different flavor in place of one of the vanilla pudding mixes.
