Whether you want to satisfy your own craving or throw an inexpensive party, the holidays may be celebrated any time!

To start out, you could make a simple eggnog, as is not in stores year-round. The following is a recipe that may be multiplied according to how many servings you need...


1 cup milk
1 large egg
1 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
nutmeg to taste

In a large measuring cup, combine all ingredients.
Mix well.

Following are recipes that may be served from a crockpot, which again you could make for your heavy coffee drinker self or for a party, which is ideal.

Eggnog Latte

2 cups brewed coffee
3 cups eggnog (recipe above)
1 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Pour into crockpot and mix.
Cook on LOW 2 hours.


Peppermint Vanilla Latte

2 cups brewed coffee
4 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
whipped cream
peppermint sticks

Pour first 4 ingredients into crockpot and mix.
Cook on LOW 2 hours.
Pour into cups.
Add shipped cream and peppermint sticks.


All of the ingredients may be found at your local dollar store, making your habit or party so affordable.

While at the dollar store, pick up some cookies to go along with the coffee ingredients, for a real royal treat!

All in all, you can celebrate by yourself or with a crowd to the tune of Christmas all year-round!
