White Chocolate Latte

I am a latte junkie… Yes I admit it. Anything mocha or latte related is a favorite of mine. I like that I can make many of these great beverages at home instead of spending over $6.00 a drink at a local coffee shop or even at my Starbuck’s. I do have to admit that I splurge on two  Grande White Chocolate Latte’s a week though on those nights I know at work will be extra long.

I hope that you enjoy this White Chocolate Recipe and decide to give it a try yourself.

Caramel Apple Milkshake

These milkshakes are packed with both apple and caramel flavor and then smothered in caramel sauce!

These little milkshakes are simply amazing. Perfect for the fall season. Even though I love my pumpkin flavored drinks during the fall season it is nice to have a different twist with the Caramel Apple flavors which is also very big for the fall time.

My niece loved these Caramel Apple Milkshakes.

Homemade EggNog

Do you love eggnog? Or are you not a fan? Let us know in the comments below. I know most people either love eggnog or don’t. We happen to love it. I was so glad to find this recipe for Homemade Eggnog. Even though I love Eggnog store bought ones are sometimes too too sweet to my liking.

This eggnog is very creamy with just enough sweetness. This recipe calls for pasteurized eggs which I found next to the organic eggs in my grocery store. So check there for pasteurized eggs. Enjoy.

Salted Caramel Latte

I am a big Latte person. I love a latte mid day to give me a small little extra pick me up. Seems to work like a charm all the time.

Salted Caramel Lattes are my favorite they are such a perfect combination of sweet with a slight kick of the coffee where it is not to sweet that you actually forget you are consuming a latte.

Two years ago we went to Italy and it was so beautiful, I don’t think I ever consumed as many lattes as on that trip. Every time I enjoy one of the Lattes it brings me back to that beautiful trip. I enjoyed all the cafes while in Italy.

Eggnog Hot Chocolate

This Eggnog Hot Chocolate is simply delicious and so cute. It’s nice to have a special little drink for all the kids at our Thanksgiving dinner and they really seemed to enjoy this one. The Sprinkles and the little snowman peeps make this one so cute for them. I also buy some cute printed holiday themed straws for the children to drink out of.

My niece always knows when she comes for Thanksgiving that I am going to have this for her to drink and she gets so excited. As soon as she walks through the door she asks if she will be having her special hot chocolate. She also enjoys helping make this hot chocolate. I set up a little hot chocolate table where all the children can add their favorite hot chocolate toppings. 🙂 They all love it.
