These recipes are all pretty thrifty, make your home smell wonderfully, and remind your taste buds that Christmas is on its way. I hope you will enjoy them as much as my family does.
Put all of this in your crock pot (4 qt size or larger, I recommend):
8 cups apple cider
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup honey
3 sticks cinnamon
1 thouroughly washed orange, cut into circles with the peel left on
Cover and cook on low at least 4 hours. Serve in mugs with an orange piece afloat on each cup and a cinnamon stick, too.
Crock Pot Peppermint Hot Cocoa
Combine the following in your crock pot, stirring well:
3 cups dry milk
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup cocoa powder
Add 1/2 cup chocolate syrup (like Hershey's) and 1 tsp peppermint extract.
Slowly whisk in 7 cups of water.
Cook on high 2 hours, or till hot. Serve with marshmallows and candy canes.
