Homemade CoCo Wheats Mix

on May 13, 2016

A few years ago someone gave us a lot of farina (cream of wheat). I appreciated it because money was tight but my family didn’t like it much. They did like the store bought chocolate hot cereal from Malt O Meal.
I found a recipe to make a copycat mix for that and it is pretty close. It is inexpensive, keeps for a long time and uses common ingredients.

Homemade CoCo Wheats Mix
14 oz farina
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c unsweetened baking cocoa powder
1/2 T salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix everything together and store in an air tight container.

To cook 1 serving:
Boil 1 cup of water in pot on stove. Add 3 T of mix while stirring. Reduce heat and simmer while stirring 3 minutes or until desired thickness is reached.
