The making of flavor #88, Trail Mix
Step 1: So we went with a camping theme this month. S’mores and Trail Mix. We decided to create a malted vanilla ‘scream to throw the trail mix in. Interestingly, we were right on target with the malted vanilla. Turns out malt powder was an explorer’s staple since it is nourishing and nonperishable. There’s even a mountain range in Antarctica named after malt powder’s inventor, William Horlick.
So here’s our Horlick malt powder mixed with the sugars (we use brown and regular sugar in this one). To it, we add vanilla and mix it with the milk and cream to create our malted vanilla base.
