Tasty Tuesday–Spike Your Cocoa

Last week the temps here in Michigan were flirting with zero. My friends in Minnesota experienced frigid temps. (Lets look for a baby boom in nine months.) Cold temp means opportunity to warm up by cuddling with a mug of hot chocolate.

Powder cocoa mix, mini marshmallows, flavored creamer. Keep mugs or cups handy. Use mugs with names to prevent confusion or use a variety of cups for fun.




For the adults, keep flavored schnapps handy. A shot of peppermint is michigan-cherry liqueurdelicious. My favorite is Michigan Cherry liqueur – tastes like a hot chocolate covered cherry!



For a bit of romance… sip a mug of spiked hot cocoa while cuddling with your honey.
