5 Festive Coffee Ideas For The Perfect Hallmark Holiday
Once the weather goes below freezing, you know we’re getting out our onesies and keeping our fuzzy socks within arm’s reach for the next five months. While you’re cozying up with a marathon of holiday movies, it’s only right to have a coffee that matches. Here are five ways to make your coffee all kinds of festive this season.
1. Candy Cane Creamer
You know that twelve-pack of candy canes you got in the holiday grab bag? It’s time to put them to good use. As long as you have cream, sugar and candy canes, you can whip up a candy cane creamer for your morning cup of Joe. Pro tip: Make sure those candy canes are crushed to a dust. You want to infuse that minty flavor as much as possible.
If you’re a gingersnap junkie like we are, you’ll love this gingerbread coffee recipe with molasses, brown sugar, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and cream. It’ll be like drinking a gingerbread house and come on, who doesn’t want to drink a gingerbread house?
3. Chocolate And Mint
As far as a mint and chocolate go, we have two foolproof ideas for your morning cup of coffee. You could either melt a bunch of crushed Thin Mints (the Girl Scout cookies) into your coffee or sprinkle in a bunch of chopped Andes chocolate mints. Whichever route you chose, do it on the stove so all of those flavors can melt together.
4. Sugar Cookie Creamer
Store-bought coffee creamers aren’t always the best route in our opinion. They’re made with a ton of filler ingredients, added sugars and artificial flavors. That’s why you should get in the habit of making your own flavored coffee creamer. A DIY cinnamon vanilla sugar cookie coffee creamer is pretty easy and your cup of caffeine will thank you for the tiny extra bit of effort.
It’s always a good idea to have a carton of eggnog in your fridge around the holidays. As long as you have eggnog, whipped cream and nutmeg, you’ll have an indulgent cup of coffee on your hands in a matter of minutes. Garnish your eggnog coffee with a cinnamon stick and you’ll be a happy camper. You’ll end up saving yourself some money at Starbucks if you can learn to make your own eggnog latte at home.
