When I was growing up, powdered milk was a strange concept too. It was the abandoned packet at the back of the cupboard for emergencies.
I have had a rethink. In the last few years the price of milk has shot through the roof, doubling even. It's cheaper to buy coke. I now have to admit that powdered milk has its place and that place is in hot chocolates (courtesy of the Destitute Gourmet)
You will need:
2 cups Milk Powder
1 ½ -2 cups icing sugar
½ cup cocoa
¼ teaspoon salt
Sift it all together. This will make enough to fill a large preserving jar.
Mix boiling water with ¼ cup of mixture to make up to a cup of hot chocolate. Recipe should make around 16 hot chocolates.
