Cold weather beverages: “cheater” coffeehouse hot cocoa

If you’re like me, this is what your house and surrounding areas looked like this weekend:


Yes, that’s my road. Things are still pretty icy around these parts.

While the snow is lovely, I am really starting to get some cabin fever…but the roads still look like this:


I miss leaving the house. I miss human interaction with people older than the age of 5. I miss my local coffee shop.

I actually did find a remedy to that one. It’s technically cheating, but it tastes sooooo good.


All you need is a packet of Swiss Miss Instant Cocoa mix, a can of Reddi-Whip whipped cream, and some powdered cocoa.

I use a Keurig, so I just pour the Swiss Miss into my favorite Pioneer Woman mug here, run hot water over it, give it a good stir, and top with the whipped cream. Then, I sprinkle the powdered cocoa on it and enjoy! It tastes just like my local coffee shop’s hot cocoa…and it surely does lift my spirits on these snowed-in days.

Come see me again soon!
