Halloween Au Lait

It's finally getting cool around here! My absolute favorite time of the year and time for a tasty hot drink. I actually clipped this recipe from a Wal Mart ad a while back and have been waiting for some cool weather to make it. Enjoyed a cup or two on my back porch! Make it for Halloween and share with your friends in a "to go" cup when they bring their children to trick or treat! A real treat for the parents!
2 cups hot brewed coffee
2 cups milk, heated
3/4 cup Coffee-mate liquid creamer
1 T. vanilla
3/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
Cinnamon sticks (optional)
Sweetener to taste
Combine coffee, milk, creamer, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large container. I then placed in my airpot to serve. Sweeten by the cup to individual preference. One sweet-n-low was perfect for me! The amount of nutmeg is reduced from the original recipe - it was just a little too strong for me. I also didn't use the cinnamon sticks for stirring but only because I didn't have any!
Happy Trick or Treating!
