Hot chocolate is one of my favorite drinks in the wintertime! It’s so easy to make a batch of homemade hot chocolate mix. Just add this mix to hot water, milk, or coffee!
You can easily turn your homemade mix into a pretty party favor or stocking stuffer…
This mix goes perfectly with the Hot Chocolate Spoons that were on the blog a few days ago! Malted milk powder can be a little tricky to find, this recipe is good with or without!
Malted Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe
3 cups powdered sugar
2 1/2 cups powdered milk
1/2 cup malted milk powder
1 cup dark cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cornstarch
In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients until well combined. Store in an airtight container.
For serving: use 3 to 4 tablespoons of the hot chocolate mix for 8 ounces of hot water or milk.
I like to use disposable frosting piping bags to create a pretty layered mix, perfect for gift giving! Take a bag and fill the tip with mini chocolate chips, add several large spoonfuls of hot chocolate mix, and top with mini marshmallows. Secure the top of the bag with a twist tie.
Use twine or ribbon to create a bow over the twist tie. Add a small tag with serving instructions, or use a marker to write the instructions right onto the bag.
