A Snowy Day Calls for a Warm Treat

Join me in the kitchen to create a snow day favorite.

For a snowy day treat make Lauren's Amaretto Mocha Italia

Lauren's Amaretto Mocha Italia

Snowy Colorado winter days call for a special warm drink and a cozy blanket. I love coffee. I am not sure if I love coffee because it powers me to sprint through the day, or if I sprint through the day because of my love of coffee. Either way, I always keep good coffee on hand at home, but snow days call for something a little extra special.

One of my favorite warm drinks to make is my Amaretto Mocha Italia. It combines hot chocolate, coffee, and Amaretto to make a delicious snowy day treat. I top mine with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. I hope you can enjoy one on your next snow day.
