Stir it up!

Sharing is our favorite.

Our kids love this recipe or really any hot drink that they can think might be like mom’s coffee. And since we have more cold months than warm, it’s nice to have a multitude of hot drink options. Our hot cocoa drink is certainly top 5, but this recipe is one they have come to love even more!

This year, the kids wanted to share with our teachers and school staff. So we saved up our ice cream buckets and make a triple batch to keep in the teacher’s lounge. Our teachers and our school staff deserve it!

Heading to a holiday gathering grab a jar for the host.

Thank your mailman, bus driver, daycare folks etc. I think you get the picture!

Caffeinated or Decaffeinated, that is the question.

I almost grabbed the wrong jar of unsweetened ice tea at the store. I was like what’s the real difference, as I’m holding both jars in my hands. AH HA! you can either mix up a little kick into your tea, or choose the decaf (which I did for my kids!) I labeled my jar different from the kids!

My farmer doesn’t do coffee and needs to cut back on the soda. He loves this drink too and it gives him a little dose of caffeine to keep him going.
