Warm Spiced Milk

Adapted from The Family Kitchen.  I served this instead of hot chocolate this morning for our decorating the tree treat (with cinnamon rolls!).

  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest

I nuked the milk for about 3 minutes, added all the ingredients, tasted and adjusted spices, then finished heating until warmed just right.  My kids would’ve been thrilled with the same amount of sugar and half the rest of the spices, but they liked it enough to drink it all up.
