Malted Hot Chocolate

I'm having so much fun taste testing new warm drinks for you, especially when it is hot chocolate! This is such a rich and creamy one that it should be considered a once-in-awhile treat.

Malted Hot Chocolate served in a clear glass mug.

I have an ongoing love affair with malted milk powder. It is a key ingredient in my all time favorite dessert, the Dusty Miller.  I also prefer a malt over a shake. I like to add it to cookie dough, cake batter, puddings, and ice creams.  My favorite is the grocery store brand Nestle Carnation because that is what I grew up with.  There are other brands, some even gourmet brands but when it comes to malted powder, give me the old favorite!

It's easy to make. You can change up your combination of milk and cream.  If I only have a cup of cream, I will add the rest in whole milk, totaling three cups.  Use good chocolate and at least some cream for the best overall experience!
