Warm and Cozy, With a Twist

Everyone loves to cozy up to a warm beverage of choice during the holiday season. Whether you are serving hot chocolate, coffee, or cider, there are some easy ways to add sparkle to your traditional cold weather drinks this year.

When I think of Christmas, peppermint follows closely behind. Why not bring this nostalgic treat to your beverage cup with some Peppermint Hot Chocolate.

By skewering Mini Doughnuts onto coffee spoons, you can turn a cup of joe into a delicious and satisfying dessert (AND they look AdOrAbLe!).

This Apple-Pie Cider is sure to be a crowd-pleaser on a cold winter day. Seasoned with the same spices you would use in a pie -- cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg -- this cider will taste almost as good as a slice of the real thing. Add a cinnamon stick to each mug for stirring and if you'd like, pour in brandy for the adults.
