Malted Hot Cocoa Mix Recipe

Malted Cocoa MixCould this be the ultimate cocoa mix? We think so. Adapted from an Alton Brown recipe, just add water and stir for a superbly creamy and oh-so dreamy mug of wintry hot chocolate.

2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups malted milk powder
1 tsp. coarse salt
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. cayenne
Pinch ground cinnamon
Pinch ground nutmeg
Tools: whisk

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 months. To make hot cocoa, combine 1/4 cup (or more, to taste) with 8 oz. of boiling water and whisk to combine (or place in an electric chocolate pot and use as directed). Top with homemade marshmallows for a totally decadent treat.
