I spent the day out shopping with my husband yesterday. We visited a mall, Costco and, my favorite, Crafty Wonderland. Between the three, we were able to wrap up the last of our Christmas shopping, which I’m pretty happy about. Once that’s done, I usually move on to the next holiday task – making delicious treats. This year I decided to try a new take on a favorite from last year and make Salted Caramel Drink Mix. Notice the word “cocoa” does not appear there. Nothing here but milky, caramel goodness.
Salted Caramel Drink Mix
2 cups dry milk powder
1/2 cup dry plain creamer
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cup caramel-flavored dry creamer
1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Process until the salt is a fine texture. To serve, add 1/4 cup mix to a mug full of hot water or milk.
If you want a chocolate version (or spiced chai) you can find those here. Put any of these in a decorated jar and it would make a tasty gift for someone you really like a lot. I mean, a lot.
