A hot drink on a cold day!


Is anybody else tired of these freezing temperatures? Anyway here are a couple of my favorite hot drinks to warm me up on a cold day! My middle child and I have taken a liking to the Land O Lakes Mint Hot Cocoa......so yummy. Only problem is that they don't sell it in a canister, they sell it by the single packets.


This Chai Latte is a new thing for me. I am not a coffee drinker, but I do like tea and I recently came across this and really like it! It is black tea with cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and ginger. I may try to figure out how to make a homemade version of this mix. I make our hot chocolate mix from scratch. I'm always out for a food challenge as well as a "way to save money" challenge! We shall see!!!

Have you ever tried putting a candy cane or andes mint in regular hot cocoa? It melts down and tastes close to the single packets..I have a recipe for the chai tea somewhere..I will look for it.

I have tried a candy cane in the regular hot chocolate before. I just usually splurge on one of these just once in a while. They are 55 cents a packet, so I usually pick up a couple, one for Micah and one for myself. Thanks for the chai tea recipe!
