Well, we are setting weather records in the north east. It couldn't possibly be for the warmest November in history, no we had to go for the coldest...isn't that just peachy? That is okay, there is no group more equipped to handle these frigid temperatures, we know what to do- fleece and flannel are our best friends, wool socks are in all of our dressers, we love our parkas and boots but, most of all...we drink lots of hot cocoa! Can you blame us, it warms from the inside out and tastes amazing at the same time!
I for one, get a little tired of plain ol' hot cocoa day after day. For that reason I like to doctor it up, throwing in a little bit of this and dash of that. Sometimes it is an utter failure other times a masterpiece! My latest experiment is definitely the later, ladies and gentlemen I give you Pumpkin Pie Hot Cocoa made with a Keurig brewer...
Although spring has certainly sprung in the north east, we are still experiencing cooler than normal evenings. I have been doing my best to make peace with mother nature by enjoying a piping hot treat under a blanket on the back porch. Not exactly what I envision for late May but, pretty darn enjoyable none the less.
I planned this recipe and bought my new, beautiful martini glasses having no idea that the results would be so AMAZING! You will look uber sophisticated sipping this delicious number out of a cinnamon sugar rimmed glass with your pinky in the air. Little will your friends and family know that your fancy drink can be made in a matter of minutes with very minimal effort (oh and its pretty darn cheap to boot)!
