Guest Blogger: Hot Drink Receipe from Maryam!
Hi everyone! My name is Maryam and I blog over on Pamplemousse1983. I'm so excited to take over for Charity for a bit since she's such a sweetie and I'm going to share with you a very yummy recipe for Gingerbread Hot Chocolate that is perfect for cold winter days.
3 cups milk (I used almond milk!)
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
dash of ground nutmeg
dash of ground allspice
dash of vanilla
empty teabag (optional)
Put the milk in a saucepan and heat over low-medium heat. Once the milk is warm add in the brown sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla. If you are using a teabag, put in the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice and tie closed with a bit of string (dental floss works in a pinch). If you're not using the teabag put those ingredients in the pot, but be forewarned it might be a bit grainy! Mix well until the cocoa and sugar are dissolved.
Serve with whipped cream or marshmallows...or both!
Makes 3 servings or 2 extra large servings.
