Holiday Hot Cocoa Mix

7 ounces dark chocolate chips
10 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
5 tablespoons vanilla malt powder
5 tablespoons cornstarch
5 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1/4 teaspoon espresso powder
A pinch of ground cinnamon

Measure out 7 ounces of dark chocolate chips. Put them into a food processor, and pulverize. This is going to take a little while, so be patient. You can pulse until the desired consistency is reached, or you can just turn it on and let it rattle like a bunch of pea gravel in a mixing bowl, until it's powdery. Put the rest of the ingredients into the food processor with the pulverized chocolate, and pulse until combined. Decant into jars or other festive containers. Attach a festive label with instructions:

Place one heaping tablespoon of mixture into 2/3 cup of simmering whole milk. Pour into mug and enjoy.
