This recipe does require a whisk. While small ones can be found in outdoor stores, made by GSI Glacier Stainless Steel Whisk, they can be sourced at nearly all dollar stores, often sold for use in home bars. If you have a non-stick pan, poke around in kitchen sections, small silicone dipped ones can be found.

If using shelf-stable milk, swap it for the milk powder and water.
