Baileys and eggnog
This slight twist on the regular eggnog allows the drinker a much merrier Christmas (at least to their taste buds). For making this awesome drink you will need 4 parts of eggnog, 2-4 parts of baileys, ice cubes (if needed), nutmeg powder and cinnamon powder. These measurements are only to serve one. Pour the eggnog and baileys onto a large glass and stir gently. Then sprinkle the nutmeg powder and cinnamon powder for a good spicing.
Snickerdoodle hot chocolate drink
For this delightful recipe that your kids and those with sweet tooth love you need 3 cups of half and half (or fat free and low fat) milk, 2/3 cups of chopped white chocolate, 1 stick of cinnamon, half a teaspoon of vanilla, half a teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of nutmeg. To start off combine the quarter of the milk and white chocolate and the cinnamon stick in a saucepan and stir gently while heating on a low setting. Once the chocolate has melted add the rest of the milk and the spices and heat in medium setting for 7-10 minutes. Then take away from stove and remove the cinnamon stick and serve. You can add whipped cream on top and some cinnamon powder for serving.
