This instant hot cocoa mix is rich and creamy with a heaping helping of malted milk powder. Chopped malted milk balls melt as you stir this hand-warming drink, which adds even more malt flavor! Just add hot water for instant gratification.
This has been my favorite warm beverage for the past two months. I’ve made instant hot cocoa before, but this malted milk version is my favorite of them all. It’s made with both dry nonfat milk powder and malted milk powder, which, with all its other awesome ingredients, stirs up with just hot water and makes a very creamy cup of cocoa.
It’s too good not to share, so dig out your mason jars or upcycled jam jars! This recipe makes plenty to pass around.
The most work you’ll do is gathering the ingredients and chopping the malted milk balls. It’s an easy-peasy homespun gift, and with more cold weather on the way, I’m sure it will be much appreciated by any deserving person on your gift list.
A jar of this mix looks extra-sweet with a mini whisk tied to its lid (you can find them ) and it’s super efficient at stirring up single servings.
