A Starbucks-y drink.

We had some fun family times here over Thanksgiving– I had a lot of fun making this drink for them.

Easy, mixed drink. Special, without lots of cost-i-o-si-o.

I make one drink at a time, in a mug.

Here is the “recipe”, if one can call it that. This “recipe” makes 1 mug.

– fill the mug 3/4 full of hot, fresh coffee

-1/2 pack, your hot chocolate drink powder of choice.

– a hefty slosh of White Chocolate Carmel Latte (flavored creamer). I`m sure other flavors would be good as well.

-top with whipped cream and mini choc chips…


Sip & enjoy…

Fun little Coffee Bar…

Any easy hot drink ideas from you? Leave them in the comments– I`d love to see you share…

    I just had the white chocolate mudslide creamer. It is so good you should try that.

    Oh, FUN! I can’t wait to try this. We love creme de menthe.
    1/2 c. water
    6 York patties
    1/3 c. sugar
    2 c. double strength coffee
    2 c. half and half.
    Heat. Top with whipped cream. (It works better to heat everything except the milk until the york patties are dissolved and then add the milk). So creamy and satisfying and yummy and surprisingly like a peppermint mocha from Starbucks.

    Happy coffee day to you!

    One that I love to drink esp in the winter is, make a really good kind of Hot Cocoa I like to use Ghirardelli, then add a squirt of flavored Syrup I like to use Monin Toffee Nut, another good flavor is hazelnut, or white chocolate. Then top with homemade whipped cream mmm yummy! This is a great drink if you don’t want any caffiene if you do add a shot of espresso!!

    Yum, I’m going to have to give a few of these a try. This morning I made the kids my own version of a mexican hot chocolate. i have no idea how those yardsale ladies make it but it’s wonderful, they won’t tell me “izza secrrrrret rrrrezipeee” (somehow theirs is thicker and creamier) No set amounts here, i use a small saucepan fill with milk, add a couple spoons of sugar, a small amount of chocolate syrup, a dash of cinnamon or allspice – serve the kids, then add half a cup of strong coffee to mine.
