I haven’t had a chance to try either of these but I just saw this blog post on Dave Ramsey’s site from Martha Thompson, their Director of Guest Relations for these yummy recipes and wanted to share because they sound really good! As they say on the original post these would also make great gift ideas and for more information about that you can check out the post HERE. (The recipes below are not for single servings- they make quite a bit so you can save and use for the entire holiday season.)
- 8-quart box nonfat dry milk (25.6 oz.)
- 3 cups Coffee-mate or other dry coffee creamer
- 1 (21.8- ounce container or 4 heaping cups) of Nesquik chocolate powdered beverage mix
- 1-pound box powdered sugar
Mix all of the above ingredients well in a very large container. Store in airtight container and when ready to serve, coop a heaping 1/3 of a cup in a mug and add boiling water. Stir thoroughly and top with one of the flavored whipped creams below.
Peppermint Whipped Cream:
In a small chilled bowl, beat 1 cup heavy whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract, beat until stiff peaks form. Makes 2 cups of whipped cream, which is enough to top 4-6 cups of hot cocoa. Garnish each serving with crushed peppermint candies.
Espresso Whipped Cream:
In a small chilled bowl, beat 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder until it begins to thicken. Add 2 tablespoons sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Makes 2 cups of whipped cream, which is enough to top 4-6 cups of hot cocoa. Sprinkle each serving with espresso powder for a pretty presentation.
- 2 jars (21.1 oz. each) orange breakfast drink mix
- 1 envelope lemonade mix
- 1 jar (3 oz.) unsweetened tea
- 1 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 cups red-hot candies
- 2 tsp. each ground- allspice, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg
Combine all ingredients. Store in cool, dry place up to six months. To prepare tea, dissolve 4 teaspoons mix in 1 cup boiling water, stir well and serve with a whole cinnamon stick.
