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.
