Flavored Hot Chocolate
A mug of hot chocolate is delicious on it's own, but, add a dash of flavored extract and it becomes extra yummy. A teaspoon of cinnamon in your cocoa mix gives you a peppermint hit. Try a teaspoon of hazelnut for a non-alcoholic Fra Angelico treat. A teaspoon of orange gives a little citrus hint to your hot chocolate.
Cocoa Up Your Yogurt
Night time is the right time for a delicious dessert, but if you're trying to watch your weight, try a teaspoon of caramel extract in a cup of plain greek or regular yogurt for a really decadent, dulce de leche treat! Sprinkle a few chopped nuts on top for crunch.
Homemade Carmel Mocha Coffee
If you don't want to head out in the cold to Starbucks for a coffee fix, splash a teaspoon and a half of carmel extract into some milk warmed in the microwave, and top with a swirl of chocolate flavored whipped cream. Just a bit of whipped cream won't add too many calories. If you want something different, put everything in a blender with some ice and turn it into a frappuccino!
