While we are soaring through the hottest part of summer, there is only one way to stay cool; frozen treats after a long day of outdoor play and back yard barbecues. Frozen hot chocolate has become a family favorite and it’s rich chocolate, not overly sweet and frothy flavor brings us back to the comfort of the hot chocolate we love during the winter months. Blend the frozen hot chocolate to be extra smooth before pouring into a large mug and top with fresh whipped cream, toasted marshmallows and crumbled graham crackers.

In the recipe for “King Arthur’s Classic White Sandwich Bread” the product “King Arthur’s Baker's Special Dry Milk” is used in place of milk. Have you ever used this product? Are there any advantages to using Baker’s Special Dry Milk?

Hi Frank! I am sorry to just now see your questions about Dry Milk. There are different opinions on dry milk and I have to say I have not used it much, but I do know that it can be substituted for liquid milk as long as the measurement in the same once water is added to the dry milk. There is also a theory that dry milk is less temperamental because you don't have to heat it in order to activate the yeast. I hope this helps, but I probably need to experiment more with dry milk to give you an exact answer.
