Gourmet Hot Chocolate Cheap!

I have to admit when visiting my Mom and getting in on her Sam's club membership, I almost caved to impulse shopping and bought this pack of gourmet specialty hot cocoas. The graham cracker chocolate one was really calling me. Thankfully the price of the cocoas and the amount of staples that were actually a bargain already in my shopping cart kept me from it.

A few days later, dreaming about that cocoa as I washed dishes in my cold kitchen reminded me that I had learned a trick for flavoring hot cocoa. Just put in a drop of extract.

I buy the cheap big can mix of hot cocoa.

Want one that tastes like ....

Almond joy? Put in a drop of coconut extract and almond extract

Mounds? coconut extract

French Vanilla? vanilla extract

Mint Chocolate? peppermint extract

Chocolate Raspberry? raspberry extract

And for my Graham Cracker one? - sprinkle of brown sugar, drop of honey and vanilla

Smores? add marshmallows to the above graham cracker one.

I don't know what you'd call it, but I really love my cocoa with a drop of vanilla and sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
