Swiss Miss Classics Milk Chocolate contains modified whey, nonfat dry milk, cocoa, maltodextrine, hydrogenated coconut oil and calcium carbonate as the primary ingredients. Swiss Miss also has several secondary ingredients to prevent it from clumping, contribute to its "brand" flavor, and lengthen its shelf life.
Homemade Swiss Miss
You can easily replicate -- and improve on -- Swiss Miss cocoa mix using readily available ingredients and none of the stabilizers, preservatives and emulsifiers you find in the package mix. Pulse 3 parts powdered sugar, 2 parts broken white-chocolate pieces, 1 part each broken dark-chocolate pieces and cocoa powder and a pinch of instant coffee in a food processor until finely ground. Portion the ingredients for the mix by weight, not volume.
Homemade Swiss Miss Tips
Freeze the food-processor blade and the white and dark chocolate before mixing it to prevent it from clumping. Pulse the mixture in 1-second bursts to prevent the blade form heating and melting the chocolate. To make a cup of hot chocolate, add 2 tablespoons of mix to a mug and pour in 6 ounces of boiling milk. Store the mix in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Add miniature dehydrated marshmallows to taste.
