This is way off topic, but...

I'm the Minister of Sciences for the Principality of the Mists. The 
Arts Minister and i are currently trying to raise money to buy a new 
pavilion for Mists A&S. We're planning to have fundraising breakfasts 
Sat 17 and Sun 18 at Mists Fall Coronet.

We're not serving period food :-( We will be serving pancakes (not 
the period kind), some sort of meat on Saturday; and just boiled eggs 
and purchased breakfast pastry or bagels on Sunday. Both days we'll 
offer hot beverages - coffee and hot water for tea.

I'd like to have hot chocolate for kids, but i *detest* Swiss Miss 
(gag, gag). Is there some other relatively inexpensive hot 
chocolate/hot cocoa mix that isn't so nasty? The advantage of Swiss 
Miss is that it comes in *portion control* packages.

There's a massive get together of cooks to make period food with each 
other on Saturday, and i can barely rouse any volunteers to help us. 
So i really can't spare someone to supervise "loose" cocoa powder.

Any suggestions? Or am i stuck serving Swiss Miss?
