Nothing compares with the taste of a steaming mug of cinnamon hot chocolate, whether you're curled up by the fireplace, coming in from an afternoon of sledding, or back country camping with the kids.
8cupspowdered milk(about 800g or 28oz.)
Put the milk powder in a blender or mixer about 1 cup at a time, and blend for 15 seconds. The finer you blend the milk powder, the better it mixes when you make hot chocolate.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together sugar, cocoa, powdered milk, and cinnamon.
TIP! For variety, try subsituting pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon for that classic fall flavour!
Scoop Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Mix into glass mason jars or other container. These make pretty teacher gifts with a festive ribbon or bow on the lid!
For camping, one recipe will fill a large Ziplock-style freezer bag. Remember to put the bag inside a second bag just to ensure against punctures or spilling.
To make Cinnamon Hot Chocolate, scoop 2-3 heaping spoonfuls of mix into a mug. Pour in boiling water, and stir!
Top with marshmallows, whipped cream, or add in a candy cane! Parents may like to try half hot chocolate and half coffee, for a nice mocha flavour. Or make "adult" hot chocolate with a little splash of mint liqueur, Baileys, Cointreau, Kahlua or whatever is in your cabinet.
My family takes a bag of this Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Mix every year on the annual "Dads and Kids Camping Trip"! It's enough to last a crowd of kids for the whole week, and I feel better knowing they get some dairy with the milk powder in this recipe.
