Hot Cinnamon Milk mix RECIPE

This is what Davis and I are giving to friends, neighbors, and co-workers {Davis’s} this year. I opted for an easy “gift in a jar” Christmas gift this year. It’s Hot Cinnamon Milk mix which tastes like Eggnog, but without the eggs!! One taste and you’ll be hooked!

I got this recipe from my good friend Amanda who just started a blog, Spatula’s and Spoons. You really should check out her blog. She cooks the most gourmet meals! She’s so talented! {I’m trying to learn a thing or two about cooking from her!}

Hot Cinnamon Milk Mix

(to fill a quart jar)
2 cups powdered milk
1 cup powdered French Vanilla creamer
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon
Simply mix together and fill your jar! To enjoy this yummy treat, mix 1/3 cup with hot water. OR for a creamier version, mix 1/3 cup mix with 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup milk. YUM!

    I love the idea and I adore anything cinnamon flavoured. One question though… what is french vanilla creamer? Is it french, or is the vanilla french? In holland my brother serves coffee with a powdered milk instead of fresh. Is it like that?

    Recipe sounds yummy – but I have a question about the amount of cinnamon. Isn't 1/2 tablespoon the same as 1 1/2 teaspoons, so both recipes have the same amount? Just want to verify before I try it!

    Thanks!

    I can't wait to try it! But 1/2 tablespoons does equal 1 1/2 teaspoons. Which recipe is correct?

    Christy is completely right. I wasn't thinking! 1/2 Tablespoon is equal to 1.5 Teaspoons. The recipe for the Pint Jar amount should be 3/4 teaspoon. {which I have now fixed) Thanks for bringing that to my attention ladies!!

    This is wonderful… thank you so much for the recipe! I also would like to know what french vanilla creamer is… I hope there is a substitute here in Australia

    I think "French Vanilla" is predominately a marketing ploy, which Wikipedia Confirms: The term French vanilla is not a type of vanilla, but is often used to designate preparations that have a strong vanilla aroma, and contain vanilla grains. The name originates from the French style of making ice cream custard base with vanilla pods, cream, and egg yolks. Inclusion of vanilla varietals from any of the former or current French dependencies noted for their exports may in fact be a part of the flavoring, though it may often be coincidental. Alternatively, French vanilla is taken to refer to a vanilla-custard flavor.[16] Syrup labeled as French vanilla may include hazelnut, custard, caramel or butterscotch flavors in addition to vanilla

    I think any powdered vanilla flavor would work.

    how about some kind of gift tag template to put the "recipe" part on? with some nice font or something??? I am fairly label challenged! Thanks.

    ok so I tried the cinnamon milk and, well, not to my liking. BUT… at the same time I bought the vanilla creamer, they had Coffemate Peppermint Mocha creamer, and THAT is the ticket for me. I just used that instead of vanilla and omitted the cinnamon. MMMMMmmmm good! I will be making this for all my friends. Thanks.

    Oh this looks so yummy. I like that it's different from all the other mixes I've found. Thank you for sharing. I love the fabric bow you used to gift it, too.

    Thanks for the great recipe! I love jar gifts! I made up a batch to try first, and it is yummy. The creamer I bought is sweetened, so I'm going to cut down on the sugar. Thanks again!!

    I tried this at my mom's house over the holidays, and it was so yummy. It's a little sweeter than I like, but I can easily cut the sugar a bit. My sister-in-law mixed it in her coffee–yum!

    I like @Kati's idea of using different flavored creamers. I may try that next.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    I made some as a Valentine for my mom and had to try it before giving it to her … so YUMMY! But I won't be having any more at 4 in the afternoon … the warm milk made me so sleepy!

      Making up another batch. Folks keep asking for it! Thanks again for such a wonderful recipe.

    I just made some of this, and I have to say: Oh. My. GOD. It's heavenly! When I was little, my mom used to mix milk, sugar, and cinnamon into steamed rice. We called it rice cereal. This reminds me of that!

    Just so I am clear, is it 1/3 cup of mix to 1 cup of water (or alternatively 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup water)?
