What’s better than being wrapped up in a blanket when the weather gets cold? I’ll give you a hint: there’s three answers. Hot cocoa, chai tea lattes, and pumpkin spice lattes. I know, I know, Starbucks doesn’t keep the PSL around for very long, but you can make your own mix and have one whenever you want. How awesome is that?!
All of these make fantastic Christmas presents too! Get some mason jars, some string or ribbon or even washi tape, slap on a label, and boom you’re done.
So without further ado, here are my favorite hot cocoa, chai tea latte, and pumpkin spice latte mix recipes that I have tried and loved.
I tried several different hot cocoa mixes over the years and this is by far the best one I have tried! I used Ghirardelli cocoa powder (why is it so hard to find in stores?!) and it was DELICIOUS. So so so SO good.
I’m not personally much of a chai tea latte fan, but my mom and my aunts love chai tea lattes! This makes a BUNCH of chai tea lattes and is a go-to gift for the chai lovers in your life.
A couple of years ago, I unleashed my inner mad scientist and tried to recreate the pumpkin spice latte in mix form. Sadly, I did not write it down. Good news for y’all; somebody else had the same thought and actually wrote it down! Word of advice, when you’re trying to perfect a recipe: WRITE IT DOWN!
I hope you’ll check them out and enjoy them as much as I have!
