Heavenly Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe

At Christmastime, I make up several batches of this hot chocolate mix to give away. I package it in clean, empty instant coffee jars and add a festive label. People frequently return the jars for refills! —Sara Tatham, Plymouth, New Hampshire

Where do you buy malted milk power?
You can usually find it in the coffee isle with the teas and cocoa mixes."

"I also made half a batch and used all chocolate malted powder instead of the regular and chocolate. It is good but VERY chocolatey! I will try it with both next time. This one is a winner with my family!"
