Best-Ever Hot Cocoa Mix: 3 cups nonfat dry milk; 2 cups confectioners' sugar; 1 1/2 cups Dutch-processed cocoa powder; 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips; 1/4 tsp. salt. Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Working in two batches, pulse ingredients in a food processor until the white chocolate is finely ground. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months. To make hot cocoa, stir 1/3 cup of this mix into 1 cup of hot milk. Top with whipped cream or marshmallows (try making homemade...even better).
Lastly, from the same cookbook, I came across these bars. They're called "European Apple-Blueberry Squares" and they're also very good and comforting on these cold days. The recipe incorporates grated apple with frozen blueberries for the filling. I froze several bags of blueberries when they were in season just for recipes like this.
