EASY SWISS MISS RECIPES
Swiss Miss is sharing some easy recipes for drinks and desserts using its cocoa mixes.
Here are some of them:
Swiss Miss Ice: Dissolve a pack of Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate or Milk Chocolate in 180 ml of warm water, and pour it into an ice tray. Freeze for at least 3 hours. Put the Swiss Miss ice cubes in a glass, pour a milk of your choice, and enjoy a rich chocolate drink for a movie night.
No-bake Swiss Miss Mug Cake: Mix one pack of Swiss Miss Choco Milk Blends, 1/4 cup of flour, and one teaspoon of sugar in a bowl. Add 1/4 cup of milk, 1/4 cup of melted butter, and one teaspoon of vanilla extract, then stir until mixture is smooth. Pour this batter into two microwavable cups and microwave these on high power for two minutes. You can also steam these cups in a pan, over high heat, for 15 minutes. Once done, let it cool for one minute. You can add another layer of flavor by topping this with vanilla ice cream.
